International conference concludes region must invest in strong project management skills
Industry analysts have named project management as “critically important” to the delivery of the GCC’s 100 largest projects.
The comments were made at the launch of the 13th International Conference, organised by Project Management Institute-Arabian Gulf Chapter (PMI-AGC), which took place in Dubai last month.
“It is critically important to remember that the success of any project being undertaken is greatly influenced by the professional expertise of the project management team. “Decisions involving risks, prioritising and selecting investments are among important areas of concern of the team and these decisions are usually critical to the success of the project,” said group president Mohammed Hammad, at the launch.
“The PMI-AGC International Conference has been organised specifically to cater to the otherwise under-served needs of project management professionals in terms of networking, benchmarking and sharing of best practices,” Hammad added.
The conference will be held from January 24 to 26, 2011 at the Gulf Hotel in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
