About the Organizer
The Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is the peak national body for Project Management in Australia. With over 7,000 members, AIPM is the second largest member of the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and the longest serving body for Project Leadership in Australia.
Project management is rapidly growing in Australia and is radically transforming the way we do business and deliver strategic initiatives across all industries. It is no longer just a job title but fast becoming an essential skill in all professions. At the forefront of corporate change, growth and innovation, the industry contributes close to 30% of Australia’s GDP.
The boom in projects correlates with senior management committing their best decision makers to project leadership and the Australian Institute of Project Management drives the professional development of these project leaders within its member base. It does this not only through training and accreditation, but also through industry-wide events and awards to celebrate project excellence.
