Project Manager : Project Manager Oct Nov 2011
www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 13 ChaPters • This is my last repor t as Queensland Chapter President before taking on the new role as National President. To all those who supported me in the elections, your confidence is truly appreciated. At the time of writing this message we are just two weeks fro m the IPMA World Congress and already have some 1000 attendees, which is a truly outstanding result. It is likely we will close the books with 1100 or more attendees. It is a small understatement that we have broken all records for a project management event in Australia. It is also really rewarding to see member events now being staged in Townsville and Mackay, with great speakers for these events. We are cur rently developing the suppor t plans for Cairns and for Rockhampton to finally complete our goal of providing the best possible regional support to Queensland members . The chapter is now over 2000 and of course we are over 10,000 members nationally and growing. The future for AIPM is really bright from this end of the telescope. I look forward to representing the project management profession as AIPM National President at this pivotal point in our history. Communication is such a major element of the successful delivery of a project, so it is critical to ‘get it right’. Poor information transfer can lose so much time, money and reputation. The project manager attending to the constant emails, meetings, documents, conversations, phone calls and reports must be careful to not sacrifice quality in communications while seeking efficiencies. A common theme at the Darwin WIPM event was achieving work-life balance. I believe that, if there are efficiencies gained in communications, it may be possible to recoup some of your valuable time, providing further opportunity for work-life balance. I challenge all of you to ponder this thought and consider efficiency in your daily communications. Also remember, as a project manager, you have two ears and one mouth – therefore potentially two-thirds of your communication could be listening. You will be surprised what you learn when you are silent! Also, let’s not forget to celebrate International Project Management Day on 3 November 2011. The day rec ognises the extraordinar y efforts made by project management professionals across the multitude of industries and in all corners of the globe.
