An interview with Robert Buttrick on programme management

Journalist Yu Yanjuan interviews Robert to gain his views on programme management, where it's heading and what he believes are the principles which make it work. Published in December 2020 in PM Review. January 2021

Two new papers published in PM World Journal!

Two papers have been published in recent editions of the PM World Journal.  The first (November 2020) is about governance and looks at this is the widest sense and what it looks like in practice.. The second was published in December 2020 and is about determining the scope of your portfolio; a portfolio can have a lot more in it than just projects!  Both papers are adapted from The Programme and Portfolio Workout which has a fuller treatment of these subjects. The papers are avalable on the articles page.

ISO 21502 launched - update to The Project Workout released

The latest international standard on project management was launched at the end of December 2020 four months ahead of schedule. Who would expect anything less for a project management standard! This means that Appendix C1 of The Project Workout needs a minor update, which I have released as an article 'An overview of the current standards'.  Even if you haven't got The Project Workout, you should find the article of interest as it compares the new ISO 21502 with its predessesor, ISO 21500:2012, BS6079:2019 and the UK government's project delivery standard, GovS002. Read the article or for more detail the blog.
