The work of the GAPPS is done by volunteers, primarily during our Thought Leadership Forums.  These teo day events are held three times a year in various parts of the world to facilitate broad global engagement.  At these events, members and their representatives come together to share their ideas, knowledge and experience; to discuss and debate and contribute to a deeper understanding of the management of projects, programs and portfolios.   These are not passive events.  They require active involvement with your peers.

At each session there will be a combination of seasoned veterans, leading practitioners, researchers, and those for whom a GAPPS Thought Leadership Forum is a new experience.  For all it is a stimulating experience.


Everyone has much to learn and contribute and at the end of the three days there is a sense of pride and achievement in having worked hard and produced good results.

The culture of the GAPPS and its Thought Leadership Forums is open, welcoming and engaging.  Over more than ten years of Forums the GAPPS has maintained a spirit of camaraderie and inclusiveness.  There is no room for hidden agendas or the pushing of personal or commercial agendas.  Those who come to  GAPPS come to fight for meaning and shared understanding.


WE HAVE FUN while learning and developing products that are made available free of charge to the entire global community.

Dinners together at the end of each day provide a social dimension and support the strong collaborative culture and work ethic of the GAPPS.  It is part of the GAPPS culture that attendees do not leave until the day after the last day of the Thought Leadership Forum so that we do get a full three days of work and the opportunity to celebrate together the good work we have done before heading home.
