Darren Dalcher of NCPM to chair APM Conference
The annual APM Conference on 27 June 2012 will be investigating and celebrating project management as 'The Art of the Possible'. The conference will again be chaired by Prof Darren Dalcher of NCPM.
Projects and programmes, by their very nature, deliver that which has yet to be proven possible - a new and innovative design, an upgraded or more reliable product or service, a more efficient way of working, a programme of transformational change, or a record-breaking building. Each project has different stakeholders, expectations, issues, risks, opportunities, challenges and outputs, making achievement a triumph of the art of the possible.
The conference will include interactive sessions, multiple streams, an array of influential speakers, and the opportunity to network with other professionals and organisations.
