'Diversity is the strength of Africa, not her weakness'*


The creativity that emerges from this diversity can be seen in the many unique exports of our continent, 

beyond our natural resources, that are increasingly being celebrated on the world stage not least of which are: writing, dance, contemporary art, and fashion - the latter being the inspiration behind our logo for this year's conference. It draws on the Shweshwe design, a fabric of complex geometric shapes with origins that blend European, Arab and African influence and are now most strongly associated with Southern Africa. These are bright and flamboyant individual patterns that while unique and diverse, complement one another in an unexpected way when sewn together. Much like the people of our continent. 

It's only natural that Africa’s creativity and diversity spills into how we do business, and how we manage projects.

The spirit then, of the 2018 edition of our PMSA Biennial National Conference is to acknowledge the unique characteristics of Africa's people – diversity; creativity; tolerance for ambiguity, uncertainty and change; patience; collaboration - and how these attributes contribute to project management. It's about the way we channel global knowledge in response to African challenges, illustrated through case studies and good practice, and the knowledge we uncover through research, experience and even trial and error, that broadens our understanding of people, practices, concepts and methodologies that can be applied to our projects.

The PMSA National Conference programme offers delegates hard hitting keynote addresses, thought provoking plenary sessions and breakaway streams looking at case studies, industry best practices and research papers exploring the overarching theme. The conference also brings together representatives of stakeholders in the professional development of project managers at various career stages who will put across the need-to-know best practice information that can guide your career path.
