Welcome to 2019!

PMI Adelaide will open its events calendar with the Annual General Meeting, followed by a great presentation by Jim McLean!

Trends in Project Management 2019
As organisations continue to tackle complex, resource intensive projects, the importance of adapting and improving project and program management remains critical. Jim will look at trends and changing practices in project and program management in Australia and globally to identify the key areas for ongoing effort over the coming year.

Presenter: Jim McLean

Jim McLean is a strong advocate for project management and a Fellow of the PMI Adelaide SA Chapter. Jim is responsible for the Transformation Program Management service line, at KPMG.

He has over 30 years’ program and project management experience, across almost every sector and industry, specializing in large scale systems integration programs that really change the way clients do business.

Jim has a keen interest in monitoring project management trends and has presented his observations a few times to Chapter events over the years.
Recent Australian survey findings produce some interesting results so Jim is keen to open up the discussion to include the findings of PMI’s Annual Global Survey (Pulse of the Profession) and what we should be doing to address any trending concerns.

The Adelaide Botanic High School was built around a unique environment explicitly designed to nurture these qualities.

Surrounded by leafy green spaces, botanic gardens and the vibrant Adelaide Zoo, our students will become a vital part of a broader hub of universities, businesses, the museum, state library and performing arts facilities. From this exhilarating vantage point they will unlock the inspiration to view tomorrow as limitless, electrifying and immediate.

Calling all Project Management Professionals to come and join PMI Adelaide for this premier event of the year and learn the criteria of next generation of Project Management Offices (PMOs).
PMI Adelaide are thrilled to bring together for you, a prestigious and professional panel discussion outlining the requirements, challenges, and successes of the next generation of PMOs. We are proud to introduce our professional panel members:
Peter Moutsatsos ǀ Chief Project Officer; Telstra ǀ 2018 PMI Global Award - PMO of the year
Dan Butcher ǀ Manager of Corporate PMO; SA Power Networks ǀ 2018 PMI Australian Award - PMO of the year
Paul MacKeddie ǀ Senior Manager Capital Delivery & Program Management; SA Water ǀ 2015 PMI global project of the year award
According to PMI, almost 60% of senior executives admit that their organisations often struggle to bridge the gap between strategic objectives and outputs of the projects they invest in. The result can be waste of money as high as $100M in every $1b portfolio value.
The value of money, customers’ high expectations, digital technology, dynamic market environment, and new skills, force organisations to disrupt their PMOs.
Meeting budget and schedule key performance indicators are not enough. Instead the importance of leadership, strategic management, and change management is becoming the essence of the next generation of PMO. These are the key fundamentals which distinguish Enterprise PMO (EPMO) from the traditional PMO.
This is a tremendous opportunity to learn how to contribute effectively and become an essential strategic part of organisations to strategically initiate, align, and delivery projects with highest profitability and success rate.
It’s an interactive opportunity between audience and panel members not to be missed by project management professionals and will be suited to the individual project manager and the corporate organisation alike.
Join us on the 2nd of May from 5pm to 8pm at the Hilton Hotel, Adelaide.
Registration is required and booking early is strongly recommended as seats are limited for this premier event of 2019.
