The Project Governance & Controls Symposium held in Canberra last week saw 200+ people enjoy: 2 international keynote plenary presentations, 5 Australian keynote plenary presentations, 27 stream presentations spread across 5 streams, and 2 panel sessions; making PGCS 2019 one of the busiest and best symposiums ever!
One highlight from the 2 days was the opening address, and presentation of the Walt Lipke award, by the Hon. Andrew Gee MP, Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister. This year’s award recipient was Professor Shankar Sankaran from UTS.
Our international speakers then conducted two outstanding Master Classes on day 3: A Practical Guide to Implementing Complex Systems Governance Concepts on Projects, and Integrating Systems Engineering and Project Management. The Match Made in Heaven Which Increases the Probability of Project Success.
We are now working on uploading all of the presentations and workshop notes to the PGCS website – project managers are good at multi-tasking and time management, but no-one can be in five rooms at the same time…… These papers will also form part of the PGCS library and can be accessed by anyone interested in improving their project management knowledge. Planning for PGCS 2020 is already underway, the Symposium will be on the 18th and 19th August 2020, followed by Masterclasses on the 20th.
