Project Manager : Project Manager Dec Jan 2012
Project Manager 26 Ayear in the making, the Young Crew weekend workshop (in conjunction with IPMA World Congress in October) was delivered by a small group of passionate project managers and mentors from AIPM’s Young Project Professionals (YPP) special interest group. Project Director Robert Davie and Young Crew Program Concept and Delivery Manager Becky Paroz have been working with Queensland’s YPP for around two years. When asked in 2010 if they could deliver a Young Crew program, both were keen to take on the challenge and assembled a team to help implement the program. Game plan Research into what the target market wanted inspired a departure from the traditional mode of conference deliver y. Young Crew 2011 was therefore not only a hands-on workshop, it was also a team competition. Held over a weekend, the workshop took a poignant focus on disaster relief. Delegates were divided into teams and assigned a country and a fictitious disaster. Their task: to create a recovery plan. Teams were challenged when the hypothetical brief changed from pitching to a group of stakeholders to targeting a documentary production company. Their plan was presented to a panel of mentors, including members of the Brisbane City Council. “ The interaction and quality of the presentations was exceptional, and shows that the future of project management as an industry and a discipline is in good hands around the world,” said Davie. Celebrating success The weekend closed with a gala dinner held at the Rydges rooftop function room in Brisbane where the competition winners were presented with prizes for the best team overall and the best presentation. The success of the Young Crew program and delegate enthusiasm to keep the ball rolling has prompted discussions about an AIPM-led national initiative. Young and Emerging Project Professionals (YEPP) will keep up the networking and knowledge sharing. Talk to your state AIPM Chapter if you are interested in being a part of the future of project management through YEPP. ••• Meet your mentor Young Crew 2011 had one clear objective: engage an international audience of under 35 pro- ject managers and kick off the IPMA World Congress in style. «delegates were divided into teams and assigned a country and a fictitious disaster. their task: to create a recovery plan» » 25th IPMA WORLD CONGRESS SPECIAL PhoTograPhybylessQuIres
