Project Manager : Project Manager Oct Nov 2012
www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 17 “ With the National Conference and PM A A celebration in sight, I would like to thank all State Councillors in the TAS Chapter for their dedicated work over the past two years, and those who have renominated to ensure that we continue to build on our number base and certifications w ithin the state. We have been developing an impressive schedule of events that will be advertised on the AIPM website and enewsletter to complete the 2012 calendar. We are changing the format of our newsletter to be more in line with the national AIPM enewsletter, so watch your inbox! Plans are under way to ma ke our TAS 2013 PMAA a success. We will have a team in place to encourage and support entries, so start thinking about projects to submit! I would also like to thank Kerr y Hilliard, our Chapter Coordinator, who is retir ing from the role. Kerry has provided great support and has also been a wonderful representative for A IPM. “ Hosting the AIPM National Conference is the standout highlight for the Victorian Chapter in October. It provides professional stimulation and a union of the project ma nagement community. Victorian PMAA Project of the Year winner for its rebranding project, Bupa, demonstrates the way project ma nagement practice has reached well beyond the industry areas in which it has traditionally been known. It shows that organisational culture is a significant factor in project success. We are now discussing non- traditional practice skills as necessar y parts of project professionalism . These include the so-called soft skills, such as communication and leadership traits, in managing projects. These aspects were always necessary, but are now more ex pressly called for in project and progra m management. A new level of professionalism is needed in a greater breadth of projects while recognising more dimensions in project settings. NOTICEBOARD » 23 OCT 4.00 FORUM: THE IMPORTANCE OF SOFT SKILLS » 24 OCT PROJECT CONTROLS SIG » 25 OCT PMO SIG “ On behalf of the SA Chapter Council, I would like to congratulate the South Australian PMAA winners: ElectraNet; Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI); City of Onkaparinga; P-3 Accord; and the recipient of the State Achievement Award, Gary Neave, Project Director with ElectraNet. The awards were proudly presented by ElectraNet at the Sebel Playford on Friday, 24 August. We had more than 160 guests attending this high-profile annual event. Further details regarding the winners can be found on the A IPM website. We have also recently held our annual SA One- day Project Management Conference. I ’d like to thank our Chapter event sponsors for their support. The SA Chapter will continue to deliver an informative event progra m in 2012, and I would like to thank our SA members for the continued support. I look forward to seeing you at upcoming SA Chapter events. “ We now have a Young and Emerging Professionals ( YEPP) Group underway, as well as monthly breakfasts, WIPM meetings and conferences. Our last conference ‘ The Challenge of Change’, brought interesting speakers who gave us much to think about. At the event, opened by Perth’s Lord Mayor Lisa Scarfiddi, we learned about the changing needs of the community, our clients and processes. After three years in the role, I am stepping aside and Matt Tindal will be taking over as Chapter President for WA. Matt is a previous Councillor and a former PMAA winner. I’ll still be around as a Councillor and will be part of the local organising committee for the National Conference in Perth in 2013. Some e xcellent keynotes have been organised already, so book your time now and stay a couple of extra days at the gateway to one of the greatest collections of mega projects in the world. It’s an exciting time to be in Western Australia!
