150109-pmwj31-eva20-LOGOAccording to the announcement: The Great and the Good from the last 20 years have been invited to come and discuss the profession of project management – A look back and a look forward! – And to sign their own charter in support of the profession.

In conjunction with the 800th anniversary of The Magna Carta, signed 15 June 1215, Stephen Carver and his Knights of the Round Table will be there to tell the story of Magna Carta and its place in modern Governance. The Holy Grail of Portfolios Programmes and Projects will be discussed and a framework enabling them work to truly extract benefits will be presented. The ways that we can best control and report on projects will be revealed.

We will attempt the miracle of turning Agile into something more than a fad. We offer it a home and a purpose. Looking at ourselves we ask how we can get better by really Listening. And show how that will help us to Learn and Lead.

We also know that you can only Change if you really want to and will ask one of our leading practitioners to tell the Cautionary Tale of Failed Change so that you can Learn from experience other than your own.

Demands will be made for better proof that Project Management works. Strong arguments will be made that we need evidence not snake-oil. There will be music and laughter too!
