PMSA 2016 National Conference
Share |


The speed of change is increasing exponentially, often to the detriment of organisations who struggle to determine which change is applicable and how to manage it to their benefit. Many see “innovation” as the solution. The call is often for creativity and a shift in culture which will enable leaders and employees to optimise change. But how to achieve this is the question.


According to, developing innovative environments within organisations is not about providing creative spaces or allowing teams to indulge in over-the-top team-building exercises and hoping that an innovative culture will emerge. Instead, innovation needs to be seen as a discipline – learning to use the right methods, tools and approaches at the right times. In other words: learning to harness innovation.


Project management often provides the ideal environment in which to harness innovation. It requires project managers’ skills sets to include the ability and know-how to encourage and develop creative thinking to achieve results within the parameters set by the project. It’s about developing the ability to marry the traditionally structured, output-driven project management approach with “out-of-the-box thinking.


This means learning, practising and honing innovation skills including what the various methods are and how they are applied in different contexts, as well as measuring the methods and their results, determining what works and what doesn’t.

The PMSA 2016 Conference aims to aid project managers in developing their own innovative skills which they can apply to their teams, as well as to intrinsically innovative projects that they have to manage.

This year's PMSA National Conference features its popular, traditional programme format on Day 1 and 2 offering 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. On Day 3 of the conference PMSA brings its own fresh, innovative take on the programme and introduces a highly interactive expo bringing together representatives of stakeholders in the professional development of project managers at various career stages. Short, punchy, focussed talks every hour will put across the need-to-know best practice information that can guide your journey. Take a look at the Programme at a Glance for more information
