Prof Mike Bourne
This is probably an over relaxed picture, but my excuse is that it was a stop on the way back from the PMAA conference in Dunedin last year.
This coming year is an exciting year for the PMA. We have our bi-annual international conference in Warsaw and we are finalising the programme over the next few days and weeks. The final paper submission deadline has been set and we are moving forward.
We have a number of key note speakers reflecting our interest in Performance measurement and Management in a Globally Connected World.
- Prof Shigeki Umeda from Musashi University, Tokyo to talk about the Japanese approach to performance measurement and management.
- We also have Prof Stanislaw Strzelczak presenting and discussing some really interesting approaches in the wider economy coming out of China.
- Dr Wafi Dawood, CEO of strategy and planning in the Knowledge and Human Development Authority from the UAE talking about positive approaches to performance.
as well as a key note by myself on a number of emerging practices.
Like all our previous conferences, we are as interested in practice as we are in theory. So we will be continuing that interesting – and sometimes difficult – debate. I will provide shortly the requirements (length, formatting, etc) for people wishing to present cases and practical insights.
We now have two special tracks confirmed, one on strategy execution and the other on project performance. More detail of these are found on the website under the Special Tracks tab.
So, put the date in your diaries and I look forward to welcoming you to Warsaw in person in September.
Finally, we expect to be announcing some further developments to the PMA as an association, so watch this space for future announcements
