Where are the project control’s heros?

I’m starting to think too many project controls experts let their ‘images’ created in Primavera, or other tools, do the talking and as a consequence fade into the background.

There are many opportunities to step up to the challenge, my immediate interest is the Project Governance and Controls Symposium in Canberra: And there are many other events world-wide where you can help guide the future of project controls and management.
