Project Manager : Project Manager Oct Nov 2011
42 Project Manager the last word Over the past 10 years I have witnessed the AIPM grow, both in membership numbers and maturity, to become a powerful presence in the industry today. Here are my top five trends of the decade: 1. Taking the world stage AIPM is now a significant player on the global project management stage, with strong ties to the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM), for which AIPM is the secretariat. Our relationship with IPMA in particular has seen AIPM become directly involved in a number of international initiatives, including the ongoing certification and standards discussions, hosting of the 2011 IPMA World Congress in Brisbane, as well as inclusion in marketing, knowledge and awards discussions. 2. Pursuing good governance My term as an AIPM Board member included appointments within the Governance Committee and Professional Development Council. The Governance Committee has ensured that AIPM has a strong and durable governance framework at the core of all its activities, while the Professional Development Council has created a pathway for project managers to build on their knowledge and experience. 3. raising industry standards AIPM’s RegPM program has become the certification of choice for the industry, providing members with clear evidence of advanced skills and knowledge, and commitment to professionalism. Based on extensive research into national and international best practice in project management, more and more organisations are recognising that RegPM is a valuable tool in the employee recruitment process. 4. rewarding industry leaders I have been directly involved in the AIPM Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAA) since its inception, initially at committee level then as Event Council Chair. I have watched PMAA grow to include awards at both a state and national level. Sought after by organisations, government and individuals, PMAA is now also connected to the inaugural Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM) Awards, which will represent some 12 countries across the Asia-Pacific region. 5. Growing membership AIPM membership has increased dramatically over the past 10 years. Building on its reputation in the Australian project management sector, AIPM has matured into a respected professional association that attracts project managers from all fields. I have enjoyed the challenge of helping grow AIPM membership as well as lobbying on behalf of these project professionals to ensure their interests are kept front of mind of decision makers. ••• ALAn TuPICoFF AIPM national director 10 years on long-time member and AIPM National Director Alan tupicoff reflects on a decade of involvement with his professional association.
