About Doug

Doug has over 25 years of experience and a proven track record of delivering complex, multi-vendor projects in the business and operational environments for the telecoms and data sector. These include: British Telecom’s Holiday Uplift Payment solution to meet the EU directive on the inclusion of contractual overtime, commissions and allowances into holiday pay, leading the technical PMO for BT’s migration of their Global HR capability to a cloud based solution and a project to deliver substantial cost savings by recovering and re-using UK data network equipment. Doug is experienced in the analysis of business processes in order to compile baseline metrics against which clear business benefits for a project can be derived and agreed with key stakeholders.

After successfully obtaining the APM’s Registered Project Professional (RPP) accreditation in 2011 Doug has been a member of the APM’s RPP assessor pool for both RPP1 and RPP2 competence frameworks. During this time Doug successfully performed the APM’s RPP assessor role for the APM/Shell contract in the Netherlands. Doug is also an examination marker for the new suite of APM’s Project Professional Qualifications (PPQ).

Doug is a very keen advocate of the APM’s RPP and Chartered Standard and has successfully mentored over 100 plus project professionals across the UK through the RPP process for both Provek and The Project Academy.
