In safe hands: ADComms achieves APM accreditation

Date: August 2015

ADComms has achieved corporate accreditation status with the Association of Project Management (APM), following its introduction of the body’s working methods earlier this year.

ADComms’ project management capability has gained a reputation for delivering complex multi-stakeholder projects in recent years. As the company grows, ADComms is investing to embed the latest industry-leading project management practices in order to ensure the continuing safe delivery of projects, on time and on budget.

The initiative has been delivered as a programme of work by a team headed up by ADComms’ director, P3M and operations, Neil Wilkinson to enable staff to achieve APM’s internationally recognised qualifications. ADComms has been investing in its P3M (portfolio, programme and project management) programme since launch to support the company’s growing project management community.

APM accreditation is currently held by fewer than 70 companies across the UK, including Network Rail.

“We are delighted to join the likes of Shell, BAE Systems, Siemens and our client Network Rail in gaining this crucial accreditation,”
said ADComms chief executive Jason Pearce.
We are actively benchmarking ourselves against accepted industry examples of best practice as we seek to introduce continuous improvement across our business. The APM accreditation is crucial to securing our future growth as it is proof of our ongoing commitment to taking a professional and collaborative approach to complex projects.”

“We are already well known throughout our industry for our flexible approach and ability to fulfil client needs at short notice,”
Wilkinson adds.
“Our APM accreditation gives further weight to our business offering.

“Enhancing ADComms’ project management capability is a substantial investment both culturally and financially that confirms our commitment to the sector,”
Wilkinson concludes.
“It’s an investment we are delighted to make to ensure better project alignment and enhanced delivery expertise across our work, thus de-risking complex projects for our client base.”

APM, a registered charity with over 560 corporate members, is the largest professional body of its kind in Europe. The association is currently in the process of applying for a royal charter.
