ABOUT THE CONFERENCE IN 2019

Competitive labour markets, skills shortages, ongoing professional development, changing methodologies, competency assessments, searching for your zen and work-life balance – with all of these trends driving expectations, how is a project manager to prioritise how they spend the time they have that isn’t caught up in a critical path?

We all want to be effective, knowledgeable, productive and marketable, while still having a meaningful private life. This results in an endless (fruitless?) quest for balance – all while the demands on our time and energy become more complex with every passing year.

In 2018, the PMSA National Conference focussed on diversity and the way the world, and project management is changing. The theme resonated with the audience, the majority of whom rated the content as ‘Very Good or ‘Excellent’. While we hit the mark with our programme, we were reminded that the rapid change we spoke of can be overwhelming, and we are not always equipped to turn it into opportunity. Workplaces become fraught with feelings of fear of failure, imposter-syndrome, and being pressured by the demands of the different aspects of our life. In an ongoing search for meaning and identity, too often we allow ourselves to be defined by our professional role, the success or failure of our most recent project, our performance review or the contents of our balance sheets. 

It is time to attend to our development as complete project managers – and complete people.

In 2019, PMSA’s now annual National Conference is themed ‘The Complete PM’ and will, as always, examine good practices in project management. This year’s event will also have a special focus on tools and techniques that can be internalised to enhance your wellbeing as a professional person, and thus as a project manager.

WHAT TO EXPECT
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. The conference also brings together representatives of stakeholders in the professional development of project managers who will put across the need-to-know best practice information that can guide your career path.
 
Plenary sessions to look forward to include:
• “Just when you thought you were a complete PM, you’re not” - PM Attributes for a new era
• The people-side of Project Management
• Hatching the 'Complete PM'
• Delivery Leaders: Project Managers of the future
• Adapting to change in the world of projects 
 

A Panel Discussion with leading strategic project leaders tackles the theme of public and private sector project management in an economic downturn.

Tools, techniques, good practice and current trends are, as always, staples on the conference programme, as are workshops and other learning opportunities.
NETWORKING AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 
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. Social networking sessions allow PMs to connect with peers, be it to find like-minded people with whom to share your ideas and experiences, or to put the word out that you are looking for new opportunities.
