International built asset consultancy, EC Harris, has become the first built asset consultancy to achieve Corporate Accreditation by the Association for Project Management (APM) for its alignment with best practice in project management and development of the skills of its Project Managers.
The APM is the largest independent professional body of its kind in Europe, aiming to develop and promote project management across all sectors of industry and setting the benchmark for excellence in the field. The APM is also currently seeking Chartered status on behalf of the UK project management profession.
Liz Wilson, Head of Professional Standards and Knowledge at the APM comments, "EC Harris' project management processes are well deserved of accreditation status. The built asset consultancy is our first professional services firm to receive this recognition, and we hope it encourages others to follow as it reinforces the professional approach to project management that we continue to champion."
Keith Andrews, Partner at EC Harris adds, "Recognition of EC Harris' project management processes by the leading industry body enables us to stand out as an exemplar in the development of project management professionals and assists us in attracting and retaining the best talent in project management."
The APM Accreditation recognises the commitment of EC Harris and its professional development processes to the project management profession, assisting in the firm's ability to provide positive outcomes for its clients.
