1st IPMA Megaprojects Special Interest Group Workshop

refinery

The IPMA recognizes the importance of megaprojects in delivering the needs of the society and the complex challenges that they present in project delivery.

Therefore, IPMA megaprojects SIG will be held on 3rd and 4th September 2015 in Primošten, Croatia. In parallel, the 12th OTMC conference on construction PM will take place (separate registration needed onwww.otmc2015.com ).

Megaprojects are extremely large-scale investment projects that typically cost more than 0.5 billion EUR or 1 billion USD. Megaprojects are united by their extreme complexity, both in technical and human terms. Globally, 20% of the total global gross domestic product (GDP) is invested in capital projects/megaprojects. Their purpose is to make the “mega” change important not only for the client and contractors, but also for the community itself. The importance of megaprojects originates from the fact that the society largely invests in available future resources, so megaprojects create and determine our future.

Speakers

The Speakers will give insight into current findings from different areas of megaproject management. We are expecting to welcome speakers from several groups dealing with megaprojects, including the ones who are, as well as the ones who are not, members of IPMA. We have the honour of welcoming Reinhard Wagner (IPMA), Harry Dimitrou (OMEGA), Aldo Gebbia (SAIPEM), Marcel Hertogh (TU Delft /NETLIPSE), Simon Henley(ICCPM), Giorgio Locatelli (University of Leeds – School of Civil engineering), Hugo Priemus (TU DELFT) and John Pelton (CROSSRAIL).

Objectives:

The “2015 IPMA Megaprojects SIG” aims at bringing together individuals, groups, SIGs working with megaprojects and exchanging experiences, activities and know-how, gathered on a national and international level and exploring possibilities of potentially forming an IPMA Megaprojects Special interest group (SIG). The key objective is to create a platform for future joint actions regarding megaproject project management developments and practices.

Benefits:

You will exchange information about megaprojects and will be able to use them for your own development. You will network with an international community of specialists in the framework of IPMA and exchange information concerning megaprojects across nations. You will join the IPMA in creating a specific know-how. You will gain insight from how megaprojects in the world are adapting and dealing with common challenges around the successful delivery of change. IPMA is planning to support any future megaproject-related activities in many ways, including organization of events, advanced courses, inclusion of streams at the World Congress Etc.

Point of contact:

If you want to join the 2015 IPMA Summit of megaprojects SIGs or if you have any questions, please register with Sandra Mišić, not later than 1st August on this link:  Number of participants is limited due to the event type.

saudi_pmc

The 4th Project Management Conference is held to reflect the efforts made by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques that aim at implementing approved projects within development plans in order to benefit from such projects in achieving prosperity for citizens. KSA is one of the biggest countries that allocate government spending to development and infrastructure projects.

The speech delivered by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to engineers during the last conference had a great impact on all stakeholders in both public and private sectors as it encouraged them to constantly pursue the best practices and solutions and overcome any organizational or legal issues to attain the optimal management of development projects.

The development renaissance the KSA is witnessing today has produced hundreds of giant projects in all development sectors. This calls for ensuring that these projects are duly implemented as planned and in a way that fulfills the expectations of the wise leadership of this generous country, and accordingly achieves the goals these projects have been approved for to better serve the country and citizens.

Based on the above, the Saudi Council of Engineers, department of Project Management has the honor to organize the 4th session of the Saudi Project Management Conference under the title: Towards A Professional Project Management Which comes in line with the Mission of the Council of assisting national action and supporting development efforts to help attaining development sectors aims and building national potentials and expertise that can properly manage the national development process.

IPMA OCB Training, Tehran, Iran 18-20 Feb. 2015

ocb_tehran

ipma_ocbTehran is hosting the first Organisational Competence Baseline (OCB) training course in the Middle East. After having the first international PEM (Project Excellence Model) training course in the Middle East in Tehran-Iran in 2013, once again IPMA intends to expand, inform and train its active network and the ambassadors for its new released leading product, OCB, with the assessment tool of Delta.

The course will be instructed by Mr. R. Wagner, president of IPMA and IPMA’s OCB Project Manager along with Mr. E. Mansson, the Chairman of Award Management Board. We are arranging this outstanding occasion together with some side attractions for those who want to participate and explore one of the biggest capitals in the world in the country with more than 5000 years of heritage.

Advantages of attending this course:

  • Familiarity with an international leading model/tool to assess Project oriented organizations: Companies’ Board of Directors (BOD) often have concerns whether with their current organizational set up, their vision can be achieved. This assessment tool helps them to align theses together. It’s also a great tool for holdings (entities with subsidiary companies), since their usual challenge is whether their subsidiaries are aligned to the strategies of the parent company or not?
  • To become a Certified National Delta Assessor for your Member Association (MA).
  • One can act as International Assessor if their Member Association (MA) is asked to assess a foreign company
  • Familiarity with the new released competency baseline from IPMA (released Oct. 2013) especially for instructors in Project Management industry in particular IPMA products (e.g.: ICB, PEM)
  • Organization’s internal quality auditors can find brilliant improvement solutions/alignment techniques for auditing purposes.
