Peeling back the covers on government programmes
6pm on Wednesday 18th
Holiday Inn, Regents Park, Carburton Street, London, W1W 5EE
Richard Bacon, MP, co-author of a ‘must read’ book for anyone
involved in, or affected by, [pretty much every UK citizen] government
programmes entitled ‘Conundrum: Why every government gets things
wrong – and what we can do about it.’
APM has a stated ambition to “create a world in which all projects
succeed by 2020" – including all Government ones! We hear a great
deal about project failure but here is a man whose experience,
dogged questioning and forensic analysis make him a formidable
member of the Public Accounts Committee.
Richard really is in a unique position of being able to provide both a diagnosis and some
recommended treatment for the project patient who is suffering with a chronic condition!

and using the right tools and processes is the critical mix to create
She'll share real examples of individuals and organisations that have
successfully engaged all stakeholder groups to generate successful
implementation with a lasting impact on the business.
Jane will inspire us, challenge our thinking and show how individual
project and programme managers can leave an unseen legacy among
people long after the project has become 'the way we do things around
here'. She will leave us with practical takeaways that we can go away and put into use immediately.
