The Auckland Certification Preparation Network will run from 2 August 2017, each Wednesday for 16 consecutive weeks.
PMINZ is happy to invite you to the October 2017 Auckland sub-branch meeting.
Our guest speaker is Perry A. Woolley. He will present a lecture on “Air crash investigations and what the project managers should learn from them".

Delivering projects, by comparison, appears to be a more risky proposition, and all-too-often project-managers appear to need to ‘wing it’.
The discussion will focus on some research into the human-factors in aviation accidents, and what project-managers can learn from them.
We’ll cover some related themes, including :
