Project Manager : Project Manager Aug Sept 2012
www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 13 “ Continuing our aim to introduce mainland speakers, Pru Sanderson, Global Business Leader, City Development at GHD presented at our first brea kfast event of 2012. It was an opportunity for the audience to hear fi rsthand about the many aspects of delivering a complex project, and discussions of changing a city landscape, mitigating r isk and meeting stakeholder outcomes followed an entertaining presentation. The last edition of Project Manager magazine carried a timely article titled ‘Risk ma nagement maturity linked to project success’ (June/ July 2012: page 6). In that article, Kristina Gerteiser was quoted regarding the minimisation of cost and time overruns achievable through r isk reduction. Her comment provided the perfect entry to our June event, Getting Risk Management R ight. Dav id Bercheree, Paul McTaggart and Martin Brinkman discussed effective risk management in their respective fields: IT, business and the constr uction industr y, and ran a scena rio work shop. The event was well attended and feedback has identified opportunities for risk events. We are also delighted to welcome back Bev Cummings. “ By the time you read this edition the Victoria 2012 PMAA winners will have been announced at our gala awards evening. Congratulations to those who were successful and thank you to all who participated, particularly our sponsors, judges, and AIPM Directors and Councillors, whose contributions are invaluable. There was a record number of entrants across almost all of the award categories. Details of the winners and our supporters are available on the AIPM website. The Victorian PMAA was held a little earlier this year, and our state conference deferred, because the National Conference is being held in Melbourne in October. I hope everyone is now finalising their registrations and arrangements for this great event. We are look ing forward to warmly welcoming you to town! Our regular events program continues. with a spotlight on change management at our September breakfast seminar, as well as more regional events, SIG meetings and our new professional development event series. AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS • NOTICEBOARD » 13 SEPT BreAkfAst seMinAr on ChAnge MAnAgeMent “ Welcome and greetings. Over the past couple of months, the SA Chapter Council has been delivering an excellent series of well attended events and SIG forums. They have covered topics such as Stakeholder Management, Managing the Managers from the Bottom Up, and All Roads Lead to the Project Manager. I encourage those attending the PMAA Gala event to enjoy the high calibre projects submitted for awards and to celebrate your achievements. I would like to thank our Chapter event sponsors of both the SA PMAA Ceremony and Gala Dinner, and the Project Management Conference for their support and generosity. There are still sponsorship opportunities on offer. The SA Chapter will continue to deliver an informative event program, which I trust you will benefit from, and I hope to see you at upcoming events. On a final note, this is an election year, and I encourage members to nominate and vote. “ All is in preparation for the PMAA lunch and the Challenge of Change one- day conference on 15 August. A great range of speakers has been lined up, lead by Perth Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi. This is an important time in the AIPM calendar and I encourage all members to consider standing for either a Chapter Councillor role or as State President. In the next month nominations will be open for these roles for the next two years. Volunteering your time is rewarding, frustrating, exciting and worth it. Think about it and if you have the time put your name forward, we can use your help! Its also time to book in for the National Conference in Melbourne in October. I look forward to seeing you there. And to close out this note, thank you to Margaret Sharpe for filling in for me over the past few months. I appreciated the space during a really busy time in my day job.
