The PMI Australia Conference’s inaugural Academic Stream dedicated to Project Management education (Day 1) and the presentation of selected research papers (Day 2) that represent a contribution to PM knowledge that is relevant to project professionals.
Gearing up for such an undertaking has been a learning experience for PMIAC17 organizers and we are proud to be able to present a full, two-program, including ten peer-reviewed, research papers at PMIAC17. Our vision is that future PMI Australia Conferences will continue to attract PM academics to connect with practitioners, and indeed become a catalyst for PM research that is relevant to, and conducted in collaboration with industry.
This PMIAC17’s Academic Stream could not have been realized without the cooperation of all the Australian Chapters and their Academic Outreach representatives, the PMI GAC Education team for hosting Day 1’s Academic Workshop, and the work done by the Academic Program Committee acknowledged in the table below, who undertook the coordination, review and selection of the research papers. PMIAC’s research papers will be published in a special collection of the Project Management Research and Practice Journal, and special thanks go to the journal’s editors: Beverly Pasian and Shankar Sankaran.
