Project Manager : April May 2011
11 www.aipm.com.au Project Manager It may have seemed strange to find no mention of the floods in the QLD Chapter section last issue; all just a matter of the timing of the writing and publication. Well, Queensland took an absolute hammering in at least three separate and major weather events. We will be feeling the effects of the flooding and the cyclone for months, if not years, to come. But we were blessed that the loss of life was not higher, our emergency response efforts were amazing and our civic leadership has been inspirational. Bruised as the Sunshine State is at the moment, we now look with shock at the events in Christchurch and in Japan. We will, as a result, be looking at issues related to disasters in the 25th IPMA World Congress. At the chapter itself, the new Chapter Council is up and running. The first event for the year featured one of the state councillors, Ian Biggs, who gave a fantastic presentation using the metaphor of how a guitar strum works to demonstrate his own experience in creating and then sustaining project management excellence in Air Services Australia. One of our large NT Government departments has realigned its organisational structure to reflect current and future AIPM RegPM levels. It is now gaining the relevant accreditations and training to complement its reorganisation plans. The department has also reviewed its position development and training requirements to meet the competency standards, which reinforces the importance of having qualified and trained project managers within an organisation to deliver critical projects in the region. Other government departments and industry will no doubt look to adopt this successful model. The new organisational structure creates a clear succession path for project managers to follow, from entry-level practitioner to executive. In addition, when qualifications and certification levels are consistent with national and international bodies like AIPM and IPMA, the model provides a means for comparison across the industry within numerous areas including remuneration, skills and capability.
