Real-Time Project Visibility and Other Tips for PM Success

PM Essentials | Stakeholder Management


How has project management software changed over the decades? 

With over 28 years’ experience under his belt, including leading technology improvements and organisational change for large corporates and working as a Senior Project Manager within the public sector (plus a stint as a professional soldier in the Australian Regular Army and regular volunteer firefighter) Mark Weeks certainly has a few project management takeaways to share.

During this insightful session, Mark will share his top 5 project management related learnings garnered from his extensive career that you may not have discovered on your own learning path. 

He’ll also discuss how shifts that have occurred over the years - like the introduction of the PC, moving from Windows 3.2 to leading edge SaaS based collaborative work management platforms and evolving management fads and methodologies - have contributed to his ‘learning and development’ mindset and how that has worked to his advantage.
