The Association for Project Management (APM) has published the tenth and concluding paper in the current APM chartered series.
This paper summarises the series and the issues of professionalism it addresses as well as updating APM progress on the journey to open the chartered register, including developing the standards and the register for chartered project professional.
It's the tenth and final in this series of chartered thought-leadership papers – ‘Road to Chartered’ – published by APM to help build capacity and thinking as a chartered body. The series, which was a year-long process, sought to provide members with insight into how APM might develop as a chartered body, what this means and, crucially, how members could feed into this evolution. It was also a signal to the public of the intent of the project profession to play its part in the development of social and economic well-being, both in the UK and globally – a contribution that, we believe, has for too long been underappreciated.
The previous paper on Diversity and inclusion [Joining the dance? Creating an inclusive profession] was published just after Easter.
