Posted by APM on 14th Dec 2012
The 27th IPMA World Congress will be taking place between 30th September and 3rd October 2013 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Registration opens in January.
The beautiful Adriatic will also host the IPMA Global Young Crew Workshop 2013, which will be held just before World Congress between 27th and 29th September for the next generation of project managers.
The conference chair, Mladen Radujkovi, explains the thinking behind the congress theme of Finding Balance and Moving Forward. He says: Our world is a world of projects, because there is no human activity without projects. Projects change our world; they transform our visions into reality and create a future fitting both for man and the community. Projects are not sufficient in themselves to realize our ideas and visions, we need successful projects, which are the result of competent project management.
He added: We would like to invite you to take part in the IPMA World Congress 2013 and contribute to the development of the project management profession. Come to Dubrovnik to find balance and improve your project management competences and thus push your projects forward.
