Introducing Future Figures 2019

A new AIPM initiative for project leaders

We're entering a new age of project leadership. We need your help to determine ‘who will define this new era?' 

Through our Future Figures 2019 Professional Advancement Framework, we will bring leaders together, and equip them for the road ahead. Expect to see a series of different opportunities coming your way as part of the Future Figures program. The next opportunity will be the Project Sponsor Masterclass in Melbourne.

What is the Project Sponsor Masterclass all about? 

This Masterclass is a rare opportunity to clarify, practice and learn about the role of project sponsor. Whilst many people already hold the title of ‘project sponsor’ in the workplace, few really understand the leadership role, responsibilities or accountabilities of the sponsor i.e. What does a sponsor really do?

This Masterclass will assist you to fully understand the role and to develop the necessary knowledge and skills so that you may take on the sponsor role in a professional capacity. Not only will this escalate you to the forefront of your industry, it will provide career path opportunities in the project management environment.  

This course will suit those working in the field of project management across any sector, and at a management/leadership level. For those already in a sponsor role, this course will prepare you for certification as a Practicing Project Sponsor.  

What does the Masterclass involve?

  • Understanding of the AIPM requirements for Certified Practicing Project Sponsor [CPPS] and the Assessment Record Book [ARB]
  • Self-assessment of project sponsor expertise and knowledge/skill gaps

  • Opportunity to network and make new connections

What will I learn at this Masterclass?
