The 10th PGCS Symposium and Masterclasses were an outstanding success and an opportunity to celebrate! The two-day symposium program consisted of seven keynote presentations, two panel sessions, and 23 concurrent sessions, with plenty of networking opportunities; followed by three international masterclasses on the third day. Post event feedback shows this 10th anniversary celebration achieved very high levels of attendee satisfaction.
The PGCS Project and Program Management Symposium 2023 was based on the theme Competent people create project success! Competent practitioners have the ability to share, acquire and apply knowledge effectively in the context of their project. PGCS 2023 delivered on each of these, great presenters, attentive delegates and everyone growing their knowledge and capabilities.
PGCS hosted an international webinar in March 2023 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of the seminal paper Schedule is Different, in The Measurable News.
