Project Manager : Project Manager Aug Sept 2013
10 Project Manager •AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS Project leadership is the responsibility not only of the project manager but of the whole project team, but often the project manager takes a signi cant load in this area. E ective communications is critical for e ective leadership. Today, stakeholders are bombarded with Tweets, emails, SMSs, blogs, intranet bulletins, enewsletters and the occasional paper letter. With this communications challenge in mind, the ACT Chapter scheduled a forum in July to explore storytelling as an approach to communications. Apparently human beings are predisposed to retaining stories rather than isolated facts. Staying with the leadership theme, the PMO SIG is building momentum with Ian Pye conducting a July PMO SIG to examine the management of Boards and sponsors by PMs. We all have a leadership role in promoting AIPM. e informal network is often the most e ective. Why not invite a colleague to an AIPM Forum or SIG? NOTICEBOARD » 06 SEPT PMAA AWARDS NIGHT » 17 SEPT PMO/P3M SIG » 19 SEPT YEPP SOCIAL MIXER / COUNCIL Q&A » 25 SEPT SEPTEMBER FORUM David Bryant ACT Chapter President Within our profession, when I think of good leadership my thoughts are with the outstanding contribution Brian Kooyman made to project management. Brian was an inaugural member and Life Fellow of AIPM; he had served AIPM as a past National President, was a respected NSW Chapter President and for mer Chair of the Council of Fellows. Brian's advocacy and in uence in the global domain of project management was well know n. Brian passed away in June, and on behalf of the NSW Chapter Council I extend our deepest sympathies to his family. is edition is well timed as the NSW Chapter's PM Forum, all about Project Leadership, was held on 15 August and hosted an outstanding line-up of speakers from within the industry. Finally, I would like to welcome the City of Sydney and Ryde City Councils as the latest Corporate Members to AIPM and the NSW Chapter. NOTICEBOARD » 23 AUG WIPM » 28 AUG SHOALHAVEN: MANAGING RISK » 29 AUG CHANGE MANAGEMENT FORUM Chris Mansfield NSW Chapter President e Queensland Chapter continues to drive regional CPD events. We now have a volunteer coordinator for the Gold Coast and so will be resuming events there in the near future. At a recent Brisbane CPD event, Mike O'Hagan from Mini Movers presented an inspirational discussion of driving his business to success. On 22 August we have Catherine Smithson, Managing Director of Being Human Pty Ltd, and on 18 September we look for ward to hearing from Peter Olivier of GHD. Our Queensland Project Management Achievement Awards cocktail function and presentation is to be held at the newly restored Brisbane City Hall. We have a new for mat, new venue, new MC and a new focus, so I encourage all state members to come along and celebrate excellence in project management in Brisbane on 6 September. I also look for ward to celebrating the subsequent success of Queensland submissions at the National Conference in Perth on 13-16 October. Mark Patch QLD Chapter President Leadership is required in our communities, industries and gover nance. Community and sporting organisations, as well as schools, provide youth with opportunities to learn and develop leadership skills, and these can be built on through further education, training and study. Once we have established our careers, we look to our professional associations to help us further develop those skills we have acquired. AIPM provides leadership for our profession of project management through a range of local, state, national and international forums, working to improve systems and support through research, discussion, training, development and certi cation. It is incumbent on all of us as members to support institutions that foster the growth of our leaders of tomorrow. By applying our skills and knowledge about project management, we can provide real resources to assist organisations as professionals and volunteers in their e orts to promote and develop leadership into the future.
