Project Manager : Project Manager Aug Sep 2011
www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 13 CHAPTERS • Queensland recruited its 2000th current member in June. This is a brilliant achievement. And in the same month AIPM reached its 10,000th current member. This milestone has enormous financial significance when you consider the value of projects that AIPM members manage and their business and community impact. In fact, I’m willing to wager that AIPM members influence at least $1B in project value per year – and that is a conservative estimate. Our city member nights, Promising Project Professionals SIG and Women in Project Management SIG continue to deliver great events, and the regional program is gaining momentum. It’s slow work with only volunteer support, but the 600 or so regional AIPM members deserve as much support as possible. It is also great to see some 500 registrations for the National Conference/IPMA World Congress one day before the close of early bird registration. International registrations are pitching up around 200 already, and the Young Crew workshop is drawing large registration numbers as well. Speakers, workshops, project tours, social events and international networking all serve to make this a must attend. The NT Project Management Achievement Awards gala dinner will be celebrated on 26 August, and we are pleased to announce that the evening will include guest speaker Sean Kildare, General Manager of INPEX Darwin. INPEX is an international oil and gas company. It is currently in the process of making the financial investment decision to construct another LNG processing facility in Darwin. Kildare will speak about the importance of quality project management processes and project managers to the success of INPEX’s Ichthys Project. Large companies are continuing to demand that all of their suppliers and subcontractors meet professional project management standards to satisfy their risk profile. As the economy continues to tighten, project financiers will not tolerate project overruns, and those with poor project management skills and methods will sink into the past or be limited to small and often low-profit jobs. To demonstrate competence requires project teams to not only undertake the necessary training, but to also consistently use quality project management processes to successfully deliver the outcome.
