Association for Project Management

Association for Project Management (APM) welcomes the National Audit Office (NAO) report ‘Lessons Learned from Major Programmes’ which draws together insights from its work on government’s major projects and programmes, examining the root causes of common problems and supporting government to improve its performance.

The Government Major Projects Portfolio, which covers government’s largest, most innovative and riskiest programmes, includes125 programmes at a combined whole-life cost of £448 billion.

David Thomson, APM’s head of external affairs said: “This National Audit Office report is a welcome contribution to building a body of evidence for what works – and what doesn’t – in projects. We share the desire of the NAO to use the evidence, lessons learned and data from previous public projects to improve performance in the future – and not just in the public sector.

"We are committed to collaborating with the NAO, and with the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, to embed these lessons with our members and the project profession in general. We have launched our own research project to review and update APM’s Conditions for Project Success, which we hope will add similar insights to delivering projects better. “
