"It's amazing how much can be achieved by one simple question - why?"

Author Mike Clayton in the blog

And when you understand how to use it, it becomes a huge asset for any project manager.Why? Yes, that’s the word. We all know how much young children love to torture their parents and carers with it, but we don’t stop asking it as adults. We just forget how powerful it really is.

The professional body for the project management industry
Introduction

The award-winning Association for Project Management is committed to developing and promoting project and programme management through its Five Dimensions of Professionalism. There are a number of ways in which you can benefit from what we do, including:

The association is a registered charity with over 19,000 individual and 500 corporate members making it the largest professional body of its kind in Europe. As part of its strategy to raise awareness and standards in the profession it is currently in the process of applying for a Royal Charter.

APM's mission statement is “to develop and promote the professional disciplines of project and programme management for the public benefit”.
