Project Manager : Project Manager Aug Sept 2012
12 Project Manager “ We have had very successful CPD events in Brisbane this year with good attendance creating a great atmosphere. David McQuire has ex plained that projects need good leadership skills. not just PM process, Peter Morrow has discussed how active risk m anagement helped deliver the venues and infrastructure for the London Olympics, and Brett Popham prov ided his perspective on significant site challenges faced by his team, and how they were overcome. Our regional events have also been going strong, with Laurie O’Donoghue prov iding Cairns members with a better perspective of our new obligations under the new OHS harmonisation laws, and Matthew Curnow speaking in Mackay about change m anagement and leadership. Our Chapter has also seen great events for both the WIPM and YEPP SIGs. Look out for notifications and go along to see what the excitement is about. “ In the past couple of years Federal Government departments have used the Portfolio, Program and Project Management Maturity Model (P3M3) to improve agency governance and overall capabilities. The potential benefits of stronger links between policy formulation and implementation are significant for both government and the community. In August, AIPM ACT and the ACT Division of the Institute of Public Administration Australia (IPAA) will co-host an executive lunch to reflect on the departments’ implementation of capability improvements. The lunch is the first of three in a P3M3 series, with remaining sessions tentatively scheduled for Q2 and Q3 2013. Nominations for Chapter Presidents and Councillors will be called this month, so take the opportunity to get involved. We have had a great response to invitations for presenters and sponsors for our monthly events. Keep the ideas and proposals coming!

We encourage any PMO me mber to participate in the online discussions and bi-monthly meetings. For more information, see the NSW event calendar on the AIPM website or contact NSW PMO SIG Chair Chris Mansfield (see page 42). NSW also has a very active Women In Project Management (WIPM) group. The next event will feature Melanie Evens, Head of Superannuation at BT Financial Group. If you are an emerging or young PM, come along to the next Young or Emerging Project Professional (YEPP) event. The election for chapter councillors and state presidents (who also become members of the AIPM Board) is coming up. Please support your institute by nominating or voting. “ I recently read the term ‘three-dimensional project manager’. We expect PMs, especially senior and experienced PMs, to be capable of excellent communication in all directions to ensure they can deliver on ‘a rt’ and ‘science’. These communications vary in type, politics and manner, and as such it is common understanding that this skill is learnt through experience. In addition, theoretical and scenario-based networking and communication sessions can assist with this learning process. All project professionals should endeavour to continue learning and refining their skills. Of equal importance is concurrent knowledge transfer through mentoring. Less experienced PMs should seek out mentoring opportunities to further assist with high level tips and tricks that assist with their communication. The NT Chapter’s focus is on prov iding opportunities for our project management professionals to increase their skills through sharing knowledge in the art and science of the profession. ❰ACT❱ ❰NSW❱ Boyd McCarron ACt Chapter President Paul Campbell NSW Chapter President ❰NT❱ Paul Clark nt Chapter President ❰QLD❱ Peter Fowler QLD Chapter President NOTICEBOARD » 15 Aug nBn ProJeCt » 31 Aug nt ChAPter PMAA • AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS
