Australia's Premier Project Management Conference / 20-22 May 2018 / Crown / Melbourne


The PMI Australia Chapters have collaborated to present an annual national conference that will provide a platform for professionals, academics and community representatives to share knowledge, experience and professional camaraderie; whilst also recognising and acknowledging professional excellence via the PMI Australia Annual Awards. The 250 delegate inaugural conference, held in 2013, was a successful beginning for what has become a firm annual event in the project management calendar.

PMIAC is now Australia’s Premier Project Management Conference and showcases the latest ideas and thinking around key project management topics to the Australian market. You will gain insights from industry leaders, influencers and scholars to deep dive into the areas impacting our profession and changing business landscape. The theme ‘Diversity, Performance, Wellbeing’ will be underpinned by four streams: Project Trends and Innovations, plus the PMI Talent Triangle™ skills of Leadership, Technical, Strategy and Business.

Many large corporates are responding to increasing digital disruption with “new ways of working”. Project Management is currently trending as a skill, not a job title. Traditional Project Managers are augmenting their toolkits to take up new roles in project delivery. Business leaders are looking for delivery leads with diverse toolkits and proven track records.

Key skills being sought are:
• Agile
• Lean
• Digital
• Innovation

Several large corporates are pursuing “Agile Transformation” agendas in a variety of sectors including banking and finance, energy utilities, telecommunications, retail, distribution and government. There is a war on talent as many of these companies seek to insource their workforce and form strong partnerships with service providers. How do you attract and retain good people to create value for your business and your customers?

Our theme this year could help you answer this question as well as help you redefine your new ways of working. Find out more about the 3-day program.
