I’ve been attending the 2013 International Conference of the AGMS at the University of California in Berkeley. Some really interesting ‘stuff’… And some really interesting people! There was no shortage of Deans from business schools around the world - an impressive bunch from schools across the US, Europe and Asia, although I did notice that an Oz contingent was missing.
My presentation, “The Future of Project Management Education” was well received by the enthusiastic audience, with lots of follow-up questions and great feedback - always a good sign!… and it’s available below for you to view.
I’ll post an update on the conference soon. In the meantime, please enjoy the presentation…
Some people want it happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
- How Do We Get More Done With Less?
– How do we share resources and use them strategically?
– How do we execute the strategy with less?
Recently I posed these questions and more in my presentation at CHI’s 9th Annual Strategic Resource Management Conference, held in Philadelphia in early November. I was equipped with some answers too, and you can check out my presentation slides to find out more. read more
And so it’s the final day. The conference hasn’t been as good as usual (in fact I might reconsider next year). It’s a pity. I’ve lain awake wondering what the difference is and finally arrived at an explanation that works for me (apart from the ear infection which I accept changed my experience a tad).
Sorry about the interruption to sending my updates – a middle ear infection got between me and most everything I wanted to do. I got to the sessions though, and my thoughts follow.
Each year I make a pilgrimage to the Academy of Management (AoM) conference. It’s the largest global gathering of people interested in all things management and this year it’s in San Antonio and has attracted over 9000 people. It’s hot (the weather).
People ask me why I go, and the answer is really simple. I want, and need, to stay up to date with the thoughts and activities and requirements of the people who hire us. To do that I need to listen and learn to what they are saying. What they see are the biggest issues facing them; what they hear is changing and what is being done to address current and future threats and opportunities. read more

Why didn’t I think of that before?”
Keep watching for news on the event plus Diane’s day by day perspectives on the speakers and presentations.

I thought it would be a good idea to present some insight and overview on the conferences I attended last week.
I chose to attend the first – the International Conference of Global Studies -because it focused on global management – overall management not just related to projects. I was invited to speak, but I wanted to give you a bit of a brief on what I heard and learned.
On Monday 28th February I presented a paper at the 2011 International Conference of the Association of Global Management Studies, which has just concluded in Las Vegas. The conference provided opportunities for networking and collaboration amongst scholars from academia, industry and government, and encouraged papers on any aspect of management and business. read more
