Association for Project Management (APM) was proud to support the 36th annual British Academy of Management (BAM) conference, which brought together leading management scholars to share their latest research.
The conference, held at the Alliance Manchester Business School, focused on the theme of Reimagining business and management as a force for good'. It explored the idea of re-imagining the purpose of business to reach the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
APM exhibited alongside world-leading publishers and hosted the first reception for BAM's new Project Experiences Special Interest Group (PREX SIG). APM's Director of Communications and External Affairs, Humayon Pramanik and Research Manager, Daniel Nicholls, also presented Naomi Brookes, Professor of Complex Programme Management at WMG, University of Warwick, with her Honorary APM Fellowship.
We had the opportunity to raise the profile of the project profession as a career and academic discipline, and promote our research programme. We also had many engaging conversations with speakers and delegates on key topics, which include levelling up, value and complexity, sustainability, research funding and collaborative opportunities including potential accreditation.
Supporting world class academic conferences such as BAM and its Project Experiences SIG is important to us. It raises the profile of project management academia and research, as well as promoting APM as the chartered membership organisation for our profession.
