Outgoing APM President Martin Barnes talks to The PM Channel

martin_barnesDr Martin Barnes, CBE, retired today as president of APM after 10 years in the role.  A few weeks ago he took time after delivering his keynote address at the 26 IPMA World Congress to give a couple of interviews to The PM Channel.

In his first interview Martin Barnes described the history of the famous Barnes Triangle or Iron Triangle that forms a founding principle of project management.   He explained to me how his original definition of the time, cost and quality trio of important objectives within a project were designed to get different disciplines working on the management of a project talking to one another.

Martin Barnes said that he regretted not choosing term performance in place of quality right from the start because even though he changed it later the original term quality stuck.
