On my way to PMOZ 2008 – Melbourne

PMOZ 2008 - Melbourne - Logo

Tomorrow Morning i am heading of to the PMOZ 2008 Conference, that will happen this year in Melbourne. The benchmark that has been set by the conference in 2007 while it happened at the Gold Coast in a very inspiring and great location, the Conrad Jupiters, with a great dinner function, valuable workshops and speaker topics is very high.

The conference is definitely one that atracts the market across all different Project Management approaches as it try’s to pitch it that way. So we see all the different organisations and best pratices represented on these days, whether its Prince2, PMI (Project Management Institute) or AIPM (Australian Institute of Project Management) or even AIM (Australian Institute of Management). Another benefit is, that the Participants are not just across the different approaches but also across the different industries.

Abstract out of the PMOZ pitch:

The Project Management Australia Conference (PMOZ), is the leading Project Management Conference in Australia and is managed by PMGlobal. PMGlobal through the PMOZ, World Project Management Week Conference and PMASIA brands have a long term commitment to advancing Project Management skills in Australia and around the world.

Now in its fouth year PMOZ will once again offer a range of dynamic and exciting presentations encompassing all aspects of “creating success” from the high level concepts of translating strategy into action through the tools and techniques employed at the coalface to make individual projects a success.
