Project Manager : Project Manager Apr May 2013
10 Project Manager •AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS While the rest of us were taking a Christmas break, one of our new ACT Councillors, Guy Wilmington, analysed Canberra's project management recr uitment practices. Guy went to a recruitment company and took a random sample of 89 'requests for quotation' for project coordinators, support sta , project managers and program directors issued in Canberra between 1 December 2011 and 30 November 2012. He found that 41 per cent of requests required quali cations, 15 per cent implied some form of quali cation and 44 per cent did not specify any quali cations. He found that 37 per cent speci ed a number of years of prior experience, while 63 per cent didn't. is activity has given us a good baseline for future work to raise awareness and knowledge of the RegPM framework among recruiters in the industry. I would also like to farewell Roger Birch, ACT Chapter Coordinator, who is returning to England. We wish him well in this new chapter of his life. ❰ACT❱ NOTICEBOARD » MAY PMO/P3M SIG » 29 MAY MAY GENERAL FORUM David Bryant ACT Chapter President e theme for this edition of Project Manager is project portfolio management (PPM) -- aligning projects with orga nisational strategy. A comprehensive PPM strategy needs to map business processes to the groups that directly and indirectly touch projects. Organisations must ensure the development of standard documentation, policies and procedures surrounding projects, and agree on a formal process to facilitate greater portfolio and project visibility. AIPM operates an assessment based accreditation program called Project Managed Organisation (PMO), which recognises organisations that have embarked on a process to continually improve their project management capabilities on an organisation-wide basis. Two NSW-based Corporate Members, Medibank and Cover-More, were recently recognised for meeting the AIPM PMO accreditation criteria. I would like to congratulate them. ❰NSW❱ NOTICEBOARD » 23 MAY STRATEGIC PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT » 30 MAY YEPP NETWORKING: PROBLEM SOLVER EDITION » 5 JUNE HUNTER REGION: DEMYSTIFYING BIM Chris Mansfield NSW Chapter President e Queensland Chapter is focused on ensuring that AIPM provides training and education opportunities for members in all regions. e success of the recent Brisbane CPD event that we co-hosted with the Change Management Institute has us thinking about how we can use this model elsewhere to o er value for our members. We already co-chair events with the Computer Society of Australia in Toowoomba and would like to take this approach in other regions. We are also looking at taking YEPP events to the regions, starting at Cairns. Planning for the Project Management Achievement Awards (PMA A) is now well under way. Submissions for the Queensland awards close in June, and the state awards dinner will take place on 6 September, with state winners going on to the national PMAA. I encourage all members to consider entering to continue Queensland's history of national award winners. ❰QLD❱ NOTICEBOARD » 14 MAY TOWNSVILLE CPD EVENT AND SITE VISIT: JCU CLINICAL PRACTICE BUILDING » 21 MAY BRISBANE CPD EVENT » 4 JUNE TOWNSVILLE CPD EVENT » 19 JUNE BRISBANE CPD EVENT » 18 JULY BRISBANE CPD EVENT Mark Patch QLD Chapter President We should regularly re- examine our strategic drivers to ensure they continue to be relevant in meeting our stated purpose and our client's expectations. For our Chapter Council and our National Board it is no di erent. Our Chapter Councillor Paul Clarke and his family have accepted a promotion to Queensland. Both Paul and Heather-Anne have worked tirelessly for the AIPM, and we wish them well. Nationally I am working with other Board members to review strategy and ensure that it is relevant and continues to deliver opportunity and value for our members. Innovations in regulation, technology and culture are the drivers in these reviews. Issues we are facing relate to integration of social networking, growth of special interest groups, and the increased demand for certi ed project skills across industry sectors. e speed of these changes is the real challenge. Our focus on organisational strategy is important to what we hope to achieve as a professional organisation in supporting our members. ❰NT❱ Brett Walker NT Chapter President NOTICEBOARD » SEE AIPM WEBSITE FOR UPCOMING NT CHAPTER EVENTS: WWW.AIPM.COM.AU
