  • The collective voice was established in 2009 by Tim Ellis (Head of the Programme Management Office, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) and David Unsworth (Project and Programme Services) Tim has been involved in the EPPM programme (excellence in programme and project management), a London-wide capacity building programme, “supporting and accelerating the development of effective programme and project management to improve outcomes for Londoners” . David was a key player in NWEGG (North West E-Government Group) where he led a programme which worked to drive up project and programme management standards in the region. He has now established his own project and programme management consultancy. During a conversation at a conference, Tim and David discussed the fact that there was no national group for sharing ppm best practice and decided to establish a group to plug the gap – the ppm collective voice was born. Tim and David engaged a number of industry experts such as OGC lead authors with the proposal and gained their support. They also utilised the ppm community of practice site to communicate with their customer base. By 2010, regional representatives were identified for most areas of the UK and a series of meetings were held to map out the future direction of the group
