Start day 21.10.2021
End day 21.10.2021
Intro text: pma focus 2021 will take place on 21st October 2021 at the Austria Center Vienna under the title "BACK TO THE ROOTS? Project Management - proven.current.successful". BACK TO THE ROOTS The call for a reorientation of project management is loud in many places. In doing so, they often forget what makes project management timeless, what values are still valid and what they will be in the future. So let's focus on the core competencies in PM, such as appreciation, self-reflection, trust or communication at eye level, especially in an extremely volatile time. Let us reflect on the roots of project management in order to grow further.

Name of the event: LEADERSHIP – IPMA Poland 24th Conference, 4-5 November 2021, ONLINE
Start day 4.11.2021
End day 5.11.2021
Intro text: Gain international experience with us, learn the secrets of modern project management! The reality in which we live is described by Zygmunt Bauman as liquid modernity. People living in liquid modernity are reluctant to make an effort - they look for solutions requiring a minimal investment of their own strength. It would be even better if every task could be a game, an activity which is extremely important for a child, but not necessarily the most important for an adult. At the same time, these people live and work in a world of "black swans", VUCA, rapid technological progress, globalisation and many other changes previously unknown to societies and organisations. Sound threatening and complicated? True, because it is. Isn't there a cure for it? Not true. It is certainly not simple, but we can certainly adapt our organisation to the reality around it. The burden of responsibility for this task should be borne by the leaders of the organisation, who play a key role in setting the direction for change. The way they do it will show whether they are average managers or leaders. The 24th IPMA Poland Leadership Conference is a forum for sharing experiences and a unique opportunity to learn about best practices and leading theories on leadership in our turbulent project management reality. You will certainly find space for discussion, polemics and inspiration, and additional meetings in thematic groups will allow you to choose the issues that intrigue you most. Don't delay - be the leader of your VUCA world!
