Description

For more than 40 years, AIM WA+UWA Business School Executive Education’s Advanced Management Program (AMP) has been a trusted pathway for professionals and leaders wanting to take the next step in their careers. It challenges participants to seek a deeper understanding of their leadership capabilities and management expertise, as they contribute to the senior levels of their organisations. The program allows participants to shift from being ‘in the job’ to ‘across the job’, with broader organisational mindset and a greater strategic perspective.

Participants are encouraged to challenge their perspectives on organisational strategy and operations, augmented by insights into their individual leadership values and capabilities. The AMP allows participants to release themselves from traditional work practices in order to step back and integrate broader insights into new management and leadership challenges.

Facilitated by a globally respected team of faculty and professional experts, learning is achieved through interactive teaching, guided discussion, case study analysis, syndicate projects, peer review and personal coaching methodologies. Cutting edge case studies are used from the West Australian, Australian and global economies, including from leading global business schools.

Condensed from its origins in business school based, accredited Executive MBA programs, the AMP includes the basic building blocks of management theory, strategic and financial management; managing human capital; organisational performance; negotiation skills; and innovation, change and marketing management. Highly credentialed and respected Chief Executive guest speakers present on a range of topics including leadership, sustainability, growth and talent retention and attraction.

Complementing the management content in the program are presentations, experiential activities and individual coaching designed to facilitate self-reflection and increase an individual’s effectiveness and leadership potential. Participants undertake a 360° assessment prior to the program, receive individualised executive coaching, examine their ability to work in teams and cross-cultural situations, and reflect on their leadership skills and their ability to achieve peak performance and work life balance.

It will deliver a six-year research plan to address the gaps in the nation’s capacity to capitalise on the opportunities and creates the tools and technologies necessary for every stage of the international battery value chain.

Details

  • Type:Workshops,Networking,Breakfasts

The engineering and construction landscape is going through a phase of accelerated transformation due to forces both inside and outside the sector. Multiple megatrends (such as population growth, urbanisation, and innovation) are demanding greater consideration for long-term sustainability and creating fertile conditions  for rapid change. How we build (methods & materials) is thus evolving, and this will inevitably influence how residential property is developed in WA. How will the homes of the future be built?

Hear from-

  • Bert Bardoel, EY Oceania Engineering & Construction Leader, as he presents the findings of EY International’s research on the Construction Sector Transformation, including global trends and predictions.
  • Michael Berglin, Deputy CEO & Robin Gerum, Head of Business Development & Strategy at Serneke (Sweden’s fastest growing construction company) as they talk collaborative design for buildability & sustainability, construction planning & use of offsite prefabrication, and preparing for the future.
  • Bill Scanlan, EY Director will then release the findings of the UDIA WA commissioned research on the potential outcomes & implications of adopting modern housing construction methods here in WA.

Does using materials other than double brick affect housing affordability through reduced lot construction requirements and shorter construction time frames? What sort of sustainability outcomes can the use of different methods & materials drive?

This is your chance to hear insights on global best practice direct from international leaders, and be the first to hear the results of important local research.

Innovation Central Perth's WISE program invites you to join us as we look into building IIoT capability within organisations.

By 2020, an estimated 50 billion devices around the globe will be connected to the Internet. The "Internet of Things” (IoT) incorporates major technology industry trends such as cloud computing, data analytics, and mobile communications, but goes beyond them, offering almost limitless versatility.

This versatility provides immense opportunities for IoT in the industrial space (IIoT) and our event will provide insights into considering IIoT enablement. It will illustrate how IIoT adoption and deployment is different for every organisation, but there are key fundamentals to consider when building strategy - such as the technology, the integration challenges, the stakeholders, and the cultural awareness that needs to happen around innovation vs traditional business case decision making.

If you are contemplating adopting or trialling IIoT, or are in the process of initiating IoT projects, then this event is for you! It’s also particularly useful for non-technical people who want to understand the key concepts, terminology and fundamental building blocks of how IIoT enables automation in industrial sectors.

Please note this event is capped at 70 attendees so be quick to register!
