Sadly not a school for producing lots of little Terry Thomas look alikes (for those with fond memories of classic British cinema) but, actually from a business perspective, something even better; an intense two-day training and development event facilitated by three of today’s most able and most experienced anti-fraud specialists: Alan McDonagh, Nigel Iyer and Veronica Morino, between them responsible for a great collection of practical fraud books: Fraud and Corruption, A Short Guide to Fraud Risk, and The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption.
Richard Minogue (The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption and, forthcoming, Bad Governance and Good Intent) poses a very interesting conundrum on his blog. He argues that despite paying lip service to governance, companies condone sharp practice and, worse still, some companies even mark down employees who put ethics above short-term gain.
Graham Oakes’ piece on the e-Consultancy blog, Governance – Nine Steps to Good Decision Making, has attracted considerable interest and comment, judging by the Twitter buzz highlighted on the same page. I am not surprised; there are few authors who can express themselves as concisely, as credibly and in term of such good common-sense as Graham. This piece is no exception – should be something of a masterclass example on how to write something short but with maximum impact. Graham Oakes is author of Gower Publishing’s Project Reviews, Assurance and Governance.
Following the APM Project Management Conference 2010 Delivering the Future in Partnership, the APM Project Management Conference 2011 aims to issue a ‘call to action’ and address the challenges of a new world by defining a new kind of project management.
“New world, new project management looks at how the profession will rise to the challenges of the new world – climate change, technological advances, globalisation, social networks, public health, security and economic regeneration and growth. The challenges require fundamentally new ways of making sense and shaping a world we neither control, nor fully understand” writes Professor Darren Dalcher (Editor of Gower’s Fundamentals of Project Management and Advances in Project Management Series’) in his APM blog.
The APM Project Management Conference is an interactive forum bringing together project professionals and decision makers from across the public and private sectors. Date: Thursday 20th October 2011. Venue: The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London, EC1Y 4SD.
