The Istanbul Project Management Association invites you to the Dynamics 2019 Congress, where attendees from leading organizations in our country from different sectors come together. Present yourself and your company at this congress that is organized annually and is the preferred venue for project managers.

Meet people that you have been trying to reach through social media and other marketing channels. Let’s include your stand at our congress.

EVM World 2018 “Intelligently Linking Information for Better Program Management”

 

FUTURE EVENT NEWS

Links are live to accept Practice Symposia and Workshop Abstracts, Registration and Exhibit/Sponsorship opportunities

January 11, 2018 – Reston, USA – CPM is announcing that the Annual Workshop – EVM World 2018 – will be held May 30-June 1, 2018 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.  This is the Premier Event in Integrated Program Performance Management (IPPM).  This year’s theme, Intelligently Linking Information for Better Program Management, embodies CPM’s mission and how we are leading the industry by helping you fit all the pieces together to gain a more comprehensive picture that allows for better program management.

 

EVM World was named a 2018 Project Controls Conference You Don’t Want to Miss by Shohreh Ghorbani, Director, Project Control Academy.  This is an annual list that boasts the best events held for education and innovation in the fields of project controls, cost, scheduling, EVM, planning, etc.  The list includes associations like AACEi, PMI, ICEAA, RICS and many more.

According to CPM’s President, Wayne Abba, in his most recent Presidential letter to the membership “[Performance Measurement]…principles remain intact …in government-wide acquisition and procurement regulations, in national and international standards, in professional and industrial associations, and in company management procedures.  CPM’s professional education and certification programs, workshops and symposia support all these disparate needs and help to advance the state of the art of integrated program performance management using earned value management and other techniques.”

According to Gordon Kranz of Enlightened Integrated Program Management, “We believe that the aerospace and construction industry can learn to manage programs better by using Building Information Modeling…At the center of earned value management is the requirement to claim technical progress based on objective criteria. During the development phase of programs objective criteria for progress claims are sometimes not straight forward. But if the cost and schedule could be electronically tagged to the system design artifacts as the design matures the technical, cost, and schedule status would be naturally integrated. The vision of BIM is to address this current lack of data integration issue throughout the project lifecycle.”

CPM is asking for abstract submissions for the education sessions at EVM World 2018. Go to www.evmworld.org/speakers for the requirements and submission.

See the program information as it unfolds at www.evmworld.org.

CPM is an international, non-profit professional organization dedicated to the disciplines of project management and performance measurement. We assist the earned value professional and project manager in professional growth and promote the application of earned value management and integrated performance measurement. We are a growing body of professionals dedicated to managing projects on time and on budget. For more, go to www.mycpm.org

This is a particularly important aspect for Latvia, since the coming years will bring many large-scale projects both in railway reconstruction and big construction objects, such as the new concert hall, as well as various sizeable event organization.

Project management is currently one of the most topical forms of task organization. The necessity for its application is dictated by several factors. The most important among them are the ever increasing complexity of products and services, and market competition. The complexity of products and services causes higher requirements for interdisciplinary knowledge, and the growing competition in markets forces businesses to make better use of their resources, become better and quicker than their competitors, and make swifter changes in their organizations, pursuing their clients’ interests. In such conditions, project management opens new opportunities for businesses.

The Professional Project Managers Association (PVPA) together with the University of Latvia are organizing already the fifth international conference on project management, giving practical and theoretical specialists from various countries the opportunity to exchange their opinions on practical and theoretical aspects of project management. Such exchange of knowledge and opinions enables us to develop project management as a professional activity not only within an individual country, but on an international level as well.

The conference programme will include opening plenary session, parallel sessions and concluding plenary session. Scientific papers presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings and on the conference website.
