PMOz is Australia’s leading independent project management conference focused on creating an environment for the cross pollination of ideas; speakers from ICT mix with construction, engineering and mining, academics with partitioners. The streamed approach keeps relevant papers together, projects in organisations, methodologies and certifications and project controls but within this framework, the new insights to be gained from listening to other peoples approach to resolving you problems, or challenges is unique to PMOz.
The opportunities to experience new ideas do not stop with the PMOz program! PMOz collocates with the iSSEC (Systems & Software Engineering Conference) each year and delegates are free to pick which sessions to attend out of either program.
Whilst some of the iSSEC papers are very technical, there is a significant overlap between systems engineering and project management that works to the benefit of both sets of delegates. It helps to understand each other! As the old joke goes: To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the systems engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Early bird registrations for PMOz are now open, we are assembling a great line up of speakers and the program for 2012 look like being the best yet (but as part of the committee I’m biased).
