Octa’s 50th Anniversary

New Zealand’s first independent project management consultancy Octa has reached it’s 50th year and will be celebrating with clients and project partners at several functions across the country.

Founder William Cockerill who sits on the board and remains active within the company, reflected on the company’s history recently.

He noted that Octa was founded more than two decades before the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge was published meaning that Octa’s systems and processes were developed in-house, and many are still in use today.
