Dear Orkney NHS Board,

Every year the public sector in Scotland spends millions of pounds
on projects of all sorts. It would appear that in many cases
project staff and managers are not properly qualified. Can you
please provide;

a) Your project management training strategy (e.g. Prince 2, APM,
PMI)?
b) The number of qualified staff, to one of the above standards, in
your organisation?
c) The number of unqualified staff working on projects?
d) The name of the person responsible for project management
training strategy?

Yours faithfully,

Martin McKenna
