Making projects fly …
Making projects fly
Takes the right people
With the right competencies
The right professional qualifications
Properly led by informed competent sponsors
Planning projects and programmes that deliver value
Prepared to meet challenges by communicating and managing
All to the benefit of themselves, their organisations, and the wider world
Now, and into the future.
I firmly believe that this is a summary of all that matters in a world built on project management.
And, better still, each of the statements is covered by our super schedule of top speakers.
Probably the strongest eVa programme ever.
Unusual, entertainingly serious and memorable, in fantastic surroundings, and with tremendous networking opportunities.
If you attend you will leave with a better understanding of yourself and the project management world we are building.
And a few new friends.
Paul Chapman, Head of Sa’id Business School’s Government Leadership Programme, and Neil Butterill, of Transport for London, talk about how to identify and understand personalities in projects
Mark Robinson, Head of Project Body of Knowledge, Airbus, talks about their competency framework for improved and appropriate allocation of people enabling them to develop and grow.
Peder Berg, Deputy Finance Minister for Norway, describes the decisions and stakeholder involvement necessary in Major Projects, ensuring that they continue to provide a compelling return on investment when delivered.
Geir Klover, world authority on Roald Amundsen and director of Oslo’s Fram museum, shows how the best and most EQ proficient planner won the race to the Pole AND back - easily.
Steve Wake will discuss his quest for a better understanding of the relationship between projects and portfolio benefits. For him the Holy Grail. He will highlight and discuss the best description he’s found (so far).
The speaker line-up includes top performers such as; Juliane Stuempel, expert on business psychology from the University of Westminster, Bruno Kahne, Airbus communications specialist and Steven Carver of Cranfield Business School legendary story-teller.
Jack Pinter, with his fantastic Agile Blues Band and Didi Hopkins of the UK National Theatre add further star-quality. All are superlative performers.
Finally, Joe Onstott will introduce delegates to the biggest experiment on the planet - the ITER Fusion for Energy project. Big experiment with a simple objective; to provide energy for the whole planet which is sustainable, non-depletable and non-nuclear for the long term benefit of the planet and mankind.
This conference will provide new perspectives and powerful insights, drawn from many other disciplines that will help delegates to get to know themselves a little better. Making Projects Fly is about equipping project managers … to face 21st century challenges through better logistics, communications and resilience.
