Project Manager : Project Manager Feb Mar 2014
www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 11 I hope you have already had a good start to 2014. e SA Chapter farewelled 2013 with an event with more than 80 members and guests, and guest speaker Brian Gilbertson, Director of the Credit Union Christmas Pageant. I would like to acknowledge major local achievements, including SA Water achieving PMO Certi cation and the Adelaide Desalination Plant project winning the Green Project Management Global Sustainability Award. In late 2013 we conducted a short member sur vey. We thank those who responded and encourage you to contact me or SA Chapter Coordinator Michelle Pearson with feedback. We are eager to see more SA entries to the 2014 PMAA. Please contact me or Michelle Pearson to nd out more. e SA Chapter is providing members with opportunities to share lessons and lear n from their peers. is is a great way to develop our industry and ensure continuous improvement. Sparked by the Council of Fellows project to document and publish the history of project management, our January sundow ner looked back at the development of project management in WA. Our next sundow ner will be a discussion led by Nancy Churchill on the current issues being addressed by our profession. We will follow this conversation in our nal sundow ner in this series and discuss what the future of project management may look like. We will kick o our breakfast for ums on 27 February, showcasing our 2013 National PMAA Project of the Year e Esperance Clean-up & Recovery Project, and we will showcase our other national winners during the year. Now is the time to start focusing on this year's PMA A. Expressions of interest are open and we are eager for WA to showcase more world-class work. It's time to get your thinking caps on and your submissions under way! With the feature topic for this issue, it is timely to reinforce integrity in project management. As project managers and team members, we are responsible for ensuring we adhere to ethical standards. As AIPM members, we abide by the Code for Professional Conduct and its underlying principles, which allow us to build client tr ust and nd solutions to tough questions. e behaviours we demonstrate are easily obser ved and we need to be aware that we are representing ourselves, our companies and the AIPM. ese behaviours de ne our integrity in the eyes of the client and others, for ming a lasting opinion about how we deliver projects. The professional integrity of AIPM members provides employees and clients the means to have people who have accepted responsibility to deliver projects. This builds on the standing of the AIPM and advances the profession, leading to credentialed team members being sought to provide quality outcomes. e new year reminds me that enthusiasm is an important attribute for a successful PM. At the same time, we have to manage e xpectations. Many projects are seen as failures because they result in dashed hopes rather than carefully devised and agreed outcomes. Stakeholder engagement and project scoping directly relate to success or failure, and will be e xplored in upcoming forums. Inter national Women's Day will see WIPM join with Women in Engineering and Women in Constr uction for a celebratory event and discussion of leadership, featuring an array of inspirational panellists. Our regional events and SIG programs are also gearing up for the year ahead. ese are an excellent way to meet fellow members and contribute to the PM community. Start thinking about submitting a 2014 PMA A entry, and attend the March presentation on submissions. » Find contact details for your State Chapter President and Coordinator on page 42.
