This is probably an over relaxed picture, but my excuse is that it was a stop on the way back from the PMA 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. We are expecting an important key note speaker from japan to talk about the Japanese approach to performance measurement and management. We are also in conversations with practitioners in Central Europe to have a (I think) contrasting view. We will also be presenting and discussing some really interesting approaches in the wider economy coming out of China as well as a number of emerging trends from Western fast moving industries.

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.

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

Best wishes
