Keynote presentations.

The committee are putting the finishing touches to an exciting speakers scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, which will showcase a great mix of Australian and international keynote speakers.

Stream presentations

Stream 1: Defence and Major Projects – Successfully delivering any major project is difficult and crafting success requires organisational capability, great teamwork, and a slice of luck. This stream focuses on the core requirements needed to manage the systemic difficulties and complexity of delivering major defence, infrastructure, engineering and business projects. Presentations will combine practical learnings from case studies, with leading-edge ideas on ways to enhance organisational effectiveness to deliver real benefits.

Stream 2: Project Controls – Presented in association with the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association (ICEAA) and the Project Controls Expo, this stream focuses on the tools and techniques needed to manage risk, and to plan and control projects of all types and sizes in an uncertain environment. Agile delivery options are creating new challenges and shifting paradigms, this steam will compare and contrast techniques that add value to both traditional and adaptive delivery options.

Stream 3: Governance – This stream will look at the challenges of building organisations that are prepared to proactively engage with the evolving dynamics of successful project delivery. Expectations of flexibility, adaptability, agility, and self-management are forcing change on the older concepts of formal contracts and rigorous control and reporting systems. Organisations that adapt to the new environment best will be the ones that deliver successful projects in the years ahead. Good governance is good business and good information remains the key to good management; the challenge is evolving organisational structures and processes to excel in the changing environment of a COVID-normal world.

Stream 4: Academic – This stream will showcase the best papers received as part of the Walt Lipke awards competition, together with reports on research projects funded in part by PGCS grants. PGCS is becoming the premier forum for the advancement of academic research into project, program and portfolio management in the Australian context, these presentations will highlight the progress we have helped achieve.
