Will improvements to project ways of working cause projects to fail? Projects are unique undertakings different in nature to operational activities. Project management methods are designed to give a familiar structure that will increase the likelihood of getting it right first time. The things that make projects successful are well known but rarely used. How can continuous improvement be controlled and contribute to higher success rates in this environment?

Carol is a programme management consultant working with senior managers in the public and private sector to help them get the most from their portfolio of projects and pool of project managers. She has contributed to the Association for Project Management's Body of Knowledge, revised project management standards for PMI and IEEE, and is a committee member for BCS Northampton branch and BCS Quality SG.
