PGCS is the only event focused on enhancing an organisation's ability to govern its projects and programs by improving the capability and integration of both its project controls and governance functions. We achieve this in three ways:
PGCS is simultaneously a major event for Australia's project management professionals and for their senior managers responsible for organisational governance.
The Symposium is designed to provide a unique learning experience - see more.
Our corporate structure is deliberately light - see about us.
We are not-for-profit, all surpluses will be invested in education and research in Australasia.
- Bringing international thought leaders from Europe and the USA to participate in the symposium.
- A strong focus on Australian academic developments including an academic stream.
- Organising one-on-one meetings between our visiting keynotes and Australian leaders.
- Publishing the symposium materials, for public access, in our library.
- Including masterclasses from international experts in the program (see this year's masterclass).
We do not seek to compete with member based organisations, PGCS policy is to network with and support all organisations focused on developing the profession of project management world-wide. See below.
