Project Manager : June July 2011
CHAPTERS • 13 www.aipm.com.au Project Manager Steady growth is the order of the day in Queensland, with membership numbers approaching a Chapter total of 2000. In March, alone, we accrued an impressive increase of 62 members. Events in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Darling Downs have been well attended. Jon Witty, well known for his unique approach to project management, presented to nearly 100 members on ‘The Private Life of Project Managers – The Social Struggle’. In June, Steve Bunotto, a legal, insurance and risk expert, will cover ‘Real Risk Management’. We are also planning events in Rockhampton, Townsville, Mackay and Cairns. The Chapter has also been active in post-disaster recovery support. In May we ran two one-day project planning workshops in Mundubbera and have further sessions scheduled for Esk in June. Our aim is to give practical guidance to communities faced with the task of getting a disaster recovery project planned. Finally, it is hard to go past reminding y’all that Brisbane will host the AIPM National Conference this year under the banner of the 25th IPMA World Congress. One thousand delegates, a world-class venue, and three great social functions – surely this is the must-attend of the year. The recent NT Budget allocated funds for housing and related works, transport, health (such as a new hospital for the Palmerston Health Precinct), community safety, education, lifestyle and environmental projects. The Power Water Corporation delivery of generation infrastructure and network assets was also incorporated. All these projects will be delivered in addition to the continuing Commonwealth projects within the Strategic Indigenous Housing and Infrastructure Program, Remote Indigenous Housing and Building the Education Revolution. This increase in project activity will create demand for qualified project management teams in an already tight labour market, a problem that exists across many Australian locations. I believe the solution is to upskill existing staff, encouraging staff retention and promoting from within. This training comes from registered training organisations (RTOs), TAFE, universities and inhouse training. The NT Government Department of Business and Employment has just completed its Project Management and Control industry upskill workshop – a series of education sessions to increase industry capability. The future is looking busy for the NT in all sectors of project management.
