The InterPM conference on the future of project management will be held on 19-20 June 2009 in Glashütten, near Frankfurt, with the them “Projects as a Cultural Experience”. The event is a nice mix of key note addresses, some talks and workshops and a large portion of Open Space where participants get to explore whatever ideas are being triggered by the talks and discussions. This edition promises to be even more interdisciplinary than ever with support coming from the German associations for project management, IT, sociology, psychology and organizational development. Klaus Wagenhals and I, representing metisLeadership will be holding the space. The use of Open Space in combination with a regular conference format gives participants a chance to explore in impromptu workshops whatever ideas they get while listening to the keynotes or other talks.
Prof. Sackmann’s (U Bundeswehr, Munich) keynote is on the cultural dynamics in projects, while Prof. Schulze (FH Northwest Switzerland) is talking about success factors for global and virtual project teams. The full program is available here (in German) and registration details are here (also in German). If you want more information, just get in touch with me. Early bird prices run until 20 April.
I look forward to seeing you there!
