Rise to the Challenge of Project Success

Project Challenge 3Project Challenge EXPO Autumn 2014 

A leading resource for project, programmes and process professionals

14th to 15th October 2014, Olympia, London

FREE entry for delegates

In the modern public sector project management is no longer an isolated function. Today, project, programme and process management are considered core components of successful strategy and accountable delivery.

Granted, the project management sector is thriving. The Project Management Institute (PMI) predicts that by the year 2020 15.7 billion new project managers will be needed to fulfil demand in a skills sector set to grow by US$6.61 trillion. If we fail to meet that challenge, a staggering $3.44 billion of GDP will be at risk.

Yet even in this context, project failure rates remain alarming. Up to 70% of projects worldwide risk failure according to KPMG, Gartner and McKinsey and Company. The reasons are complex, but one thing’s for sure: in the future the project manager who is equipped with advanced knowledge and evolving techniques will be the project manager who wins.

Featuring 40 free seminars from eminent speakers, plus an exhibition floor packed with leading suppliers, new market offerings and advanced PM solutions, Project Challenge EXPO is widely regarded as the leading resource for professionals keen to hone their skills, develop their organisational strategy, and break the project failure cycle once and for all.
