The Henley MBA (Project Management) Programme Manager, Dr Stephen Simister, has been announced as a panellist on The Guardian's live online Q and A session for those in the Project Management sector on 12th January at 1–4pm

As the project management community waits for the findings and updates from the Arras People 2010 Project Management Benchmark Report - due on February 1 - The Guardian has assembled a panel of professionals working in the sector to answer questions about the current job market and offer career advice to everyone from experienced project managers to those just starting out in the field.

The Henley MBA (Project Management) is designed for experienced managers who are seeking to work in organisations that deploy corporate strategy through portfolio, programme and project management. Managers within project-oriented organisations require an in depth understanding of organisational management and its relationship to portfolio, programme and project management. The Henley MBA (Project Management) provides this link between strategy development and deployment.

Dr Stephen Simister joined Henley Business School in 2006 to build on and strengthen Henley's project management expertise. Prior to joining Henley he was a self employed consultant for 10 years, providing project management support to organisations including Pfizer, Network Rail, Astrazeneca, BP and a number of central government departments. He was involved with the development and implementation of project management methodologies in two blue chip pharmaceutical companies, developing risk management practices for a number of organisations to comply with the combined code (Turnbull report), provision of project health checks and a range of project support services. In addition, he is a high risk accredited Gateway reviewer with 4ps. In his early career, Stephen worked as a project manager for Bovis, Hunter & Partners and Westminster City Council. He was a research fellow at Reading University where his doctoral research was in the area of 'Contractual risk transfer between clients and professional service organisations'.

The Henley MBA is a leading business management course that can be achieved through a number of modes - the Full Time MBA, the Executive MBA, the Flexible Learning MBA, and a distance learning MBA.
