The IAPM – A promising future

The IAPM – A promising future 21.11.2014 - Bad news is good news - sad but true. You can see evidence of it everywhere - on TV, on the internet and in the print media.

How To Prepare A Project Proposal 16.10.2014 - There’s been an empty lot round the corner from my home for some time now. It’s got hoarding up but frankly it’s an eyesore. The delay to putting up the new houses, I found out last week, is that the proposals from the builders have been rejected. Now it seems like we’ll be waiting for the local authorities to review a new proposal and maybe that one will get the green light. The builders would have prepared a project proposal for consideration, and this is the document that also kicks off other projects. Read more »
