Project Manager : Project Manager Dec Jan 2014
CHIVONNE ALGEO (FAIPM, CPPD) Chivonne Algeo is Chair of the AIPM Council of Fellows and a former National Director of AIPM. With more than 20 years' experience in delivering a variety of projects for major financial, insurance and health organisations, Chivonne works with government institutions to develop their project management capability and teaches a range of postgraduate project management subjects. Her research focuses on the management of project knowledge and how PMs deal with ambiguity and multiple and conflicting demands. 36 Project Manager COUNCIL OF FELLOWS A lifetime of lessons The AIPM Council of Fellows is a dedicated group of well-known figures within the project management profession, from a diverse set of industries. Fellows work to raise the profile of the PM profession and AIPM, and advise the Board when difficult issues arise. THE AIPM COUNCIL OF FELLOWS (CoF) was established in 2008 with a group of Fellows who had been involved with the AIPM for several decades, possibly making too much noise. What better way to channel that energy and enthusiasm than to invite them onto a Council to share their knowledge and wisdom? ese early activists included past National and Chapter Presidents, and those who have been involved in other signi cant AIPM activities over a prolonged and concurrent period of time. e rst Chair man of the CoF was Brian Kooyman, followed by Peter Dechaineux and, recently appointed, Chivonne Algeo. Early members included Ted Tooher, David Far well, Heinz Haselroither, Neveen Moussa and Phil Harlow, with the baton passing recently to Paul Steinfort, Alan Tupico , Ray Abe, Bill Young, Nick Massie and Robin Schliebs. e CoF has a connection to the National Board through National Director Ian Sharpe, in order to deliver against its Charter, which is to: "Provide the AIPM Board of Directors with the best possible advice on resolving di cult issues. Such advice shall be objective, independent of organisational in uences, and be given with the express aim of allowing the Directors to make informed and fair decisions in the best interest of the AIPM and its members. We meet monthly via teleconference to manage a number of initiatives to meet this mission, often forming Sub-Committees and engaging exter nal parties". e initiatives the CoF is currently working on include a review of this Charter to ensure it is aligned with the Board and Members' needs in a dynamic environment. A review of the nomination criteria and processes involved with admitting new Fellows is also underway. e current criteria and information on the application process can be found on the AIPM website in the 'About' tab under CoF. e CoF is reviewing the development of project management as a profession and the Code of Professional Conduct, and investigating other initiatives to raise the pro le of the AIPM as a professional Institute. ese include: • the development of an online history book • the for mation of expert witness panels • a Professional Performance Innovation and Risk (PPIRTM) Project ese initiatives involve active engagement with the Board, the Governance Council and the Professional Development Council, as well as the Chapters and other Committees, to facilitate alignment. In closing, we re ect on the wise words of British author and journalist, the late Miles Kington: "Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fr uit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fr uit salad ". ••• WE MEET TO MANAGE INITIATIVES, FORMING SUB-COMMITTEES AND ENGAGING EXTERNAL PARTIES GET INVOLVED As with any dedicated and passionate voluntary group, the CoF relies on support and feedback.
