Case Studies, Achievements and Portfolio of Work
We work with a broad range of organisations and companies. Where possible we try and publish case studies and key information from projects we have completed to give prospective customers and partners a clear idea of our portfolio. If you have any questions about any of these projects or case studies please contact us and we would be happy to discuss how it might relate to a project you are working on.
I found the APM PMQ very informative and insightful. Mike and Paul were excellent in delivering the course and kept everyone chirpy on the dark winter evenings with plenty of tea, biscuits and banter. I found the course material worked well as a refresher or in addition to previous studies. I would highly recommend to those wanting to learn project management or people who are already working in the industry.
Initial ideas excellent – the follow up work was even better!
Brett was employed as a senior project planner on the Primark Oracle Programme from 2018 – 2019. Brett’s main responsibility was to manage multiple project plans for a large scale Oracle programme; this activity involved co-ordination of numerous external suppliers plans. Brett successfully managed these plans to provide the programme with a fully integrated plan. In addition to creating a fully integrated plan, Brett created procedures for maintenance of plans and a suite of reports, including quality assurance reports.
I wanted to thank you both very much for your support, guidance and encouragement on and leading up to the project management course. I really enjoyed the course and your company – the delivery was brilliant and I just wish all the courses / training etc could be more like this! The course really inspired me to take the next step in my career!
You are an incredible duo and your warmth and genuine desire to make us all pass is evident for all to see! You gave great advice to do complete the PFQ first and I feel after completing my PFQ week I met some super people that really did make a tough week a better one! I look forward to learning my results from the recent PMQ exam 😊.
The APM PMQ course material was delivered in a professional yet entertaining manner. This created a dynamic environment where I felt inspired to learn. I felt that I had the total support of the training team in and out of the classroom, which lead to me passing the course and achieving a recognised project management qualification.I would recommend the course to anyone.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s event (fingers crossed!)
Case Studies and Portfolio of our PMO Team in Action
Alexander Dennis PMO Support and Training
Alexander Dennis is one of the most famous coach and bus builders in the world. With a range of facilities around the UK, Alexander Dennis contacted us as they were wanting to improve efficiency and implement a range of upgrades at their factories.
PLP provided in company project management and software training and a range of additional PMO support to assist ADL.
Leeds City Council - Bespoke Project Management Training Package to Fit with Employee Working Week
As you can imagine, Leeds City Council undertake a huge range of projects – from simple projects involving chopping trees down or clearing an area of waste ground for community use to major infrastructure projects. That’s why Leeds City Council require all key staff to undergo project management training in order to be able to deliver the best possible value and performance for the local rate payers.
PL Projects worked with the council and their employees to put together an ongoing training package for council workers on a part time evening basis in order to fit in with their busy working week. Council staff regularly attend these sessions and we have now trained tens if not hundreds in the APM Accredited Project Fundamentals Qualification and Project Management Qualification.
Network Rail - PMO Support including Project Planning and Management for the HS2 Link
The HS2 rail project is almost certainly one of the biggest infrastructure projects that have taken place in the UK in recent memory. As such there are a huge range of challenges and issues involved with putting the project together and making it a success.
Pl Projects worked alongside a number of companies on this project proving key support and planning during the HS2 link stage of the project.
RSPB - PMO Support during expansion of facility at Barsnley
Working with charities such as the RSPB presents a number of important challenges. With limited resources it can be difficult to achieve what’s required in the space of time available. That;s where project management support can come into its own, ensuring budgets are properly worked out, works progress as specified and everything is kept under good governance. We thoroughly enjoyed the challenges of working with the RSPB on their Barnsley site.
Such was the success of our work at Barnsley RSPB that we’re still in touch! We use the RSPB facilities their as a base for our APM Accredited Project Fundamentals Qualification and Project Management Qualification training.
