PGCS 2024 is designed to accelerate your capability to deliver viable project outcomes Capability matters in all aspects of project and program management. Capable people are needed to deliver success, supported by capable systems, policies, and procedures, all focused on creating viable project outcomes for the organization.
PGCS 2024 will look at capability from every angle, from using Capabilities-Based Planning to optimize the specifications for a new product or service, through the capabilities needed to accelerate the delivery of projects and programs in a complex and volatile environment, to the design of the PGCS program which is focused on enhancing the capabilities of attendees to succeed in their careers. PGCS is the ideal opportunity to grow your knowledge and learn how to apply it effectively by being involved, attending the sessions, and then interacting with our presenters and your colleagues through the symposium's range of networking opportunities.
As always, this year's PGCS project and program management symposium will feature an exciting range of masterclasses, keynote and stream speakers focused around our theme 'capability matters'.
- Stream 1: Delivering the required capability in a complex environment .
- Stream 2: The MOEs and MOPs of an effective project controls system.
- Stream 3: Creating capable organizations and people.

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 are invested in education and research in Australasia - see more on our research grants.
- Bringing international thought leaders from Europe and the USA to participate in the symposium.
- A strong focus on Australian academic development.
- Organising one-on-one meetings between our visiting keynotes and Australian leaders.
