Speaker Bio

Malcolm West is the founder and Managing Director of PROJECT in a box. Trained as a Mechanical Engineer and is a seasoned veteran of projects, project management, leading project based organisations and implementing PPM best practice in organisations, he says he has the scars to prove it. Malcolm has a Warwick MBA and was the APM’s Sir Monty Finniston Award winner in 1999. Malcolm still spends much of his time working hands on with organisations helping them improve the way they deliver their projects.

A critical look at the controls being used today for the projects we will start tomorrow.

This zone states that ‘Project controls’ are the information gathering, analytics and management processes used to predict, understand and influence the time / cost outcomes of a project or program.

As the we accelerate into the 21st century is it right to still be focusing on predicting, understanding and trying to influence time and cost? Isn’t this yesterday thinking? Today seems to have a desire to deliver tomorrows benefit and desperately wants good value for money.

This session will look at the need to shift focus from trying to control “old world” constraints to enabling “new world” delivery, without repeating the mistakes of the past.
