It’s one of those words that seems to be mentioned a lot in relation to project management in recent years.
The value that project management can bring to an organisation. The value of a PMO to a project management organisation. The value of getting a decent project manager to run your project.
That’s a lot of justification going on.
The question we’re answering at this autumn’s Project Challenge expo is:
“Do you understand your value in the programme and project management marketplace?”
This is not about justifying who you are and what you bring to an organisation – it’s about understanding what the marketplace values in a project management practitioner and everything that goes along with that.
Arras People MD, John Thorpe, takes to the stage to talk about the value of you. Here’s the session overview:
With commentators noting that the UK market is fast approaching full employment and external factors such as IR35 impacting the contractor community, there is much to consider when trying to understand the UK market for PPM practitioners. Ultimately you are only worth as much as somebody is willing to pay, but being prepared for that negotiation has never been more important.
John, the author of the Arras People Project Management Benchmark Report (PMBR) for the last 12 years, will be exploring the data from the Arras People report along with data published by other sources to offer practitioners a view on the UK market and what this means for you!
Project Challenge takes place on Tuesday 10th October and Wednesday 11th October at London’s Olympia venue. Arras People have an expo stand there for the duration of the show and the session will be shown in one of the four seminar sections at the show. Date and time of the sessions is yet to be confirmed – register and receive the final details when they’re published.
There is a full programme of seminars across the two days – a great place to get up to date with what’s happening in the project management space at the moment – plus we’re there with a copy of the Project Management Benchmark Report too!
Join us and answer the question, “Do you understand your value in the programme and project management marketplace?” – with a resounding yes!
