BPUG and the BPUG International Congress

The Best Practice User Group is the user group for programmes, projects and risks. Their mission is “to help users adopt, use, share and shape the application of OGC Project and Programme Management Products”.

The first BPUG International Congress – which happened in February 2008 – saw over 150 delegates from nine different countries get together to discuss key programme and project management issues, as well as share experiences, ideas and success stories. Following last year’s success, the next BPUG International Congress will take place on the 10th and 11th of February 2009 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel – which overlooks London’s Hyde Park.

Once more, we are going to be attending and sponsoring this event, which focuses on the practicalities of programme and project management and provides excellent networking opportunities – thanks to its two-day format and the fun gala dinner. At last year’s BPUG Award Ceremony we won the award for “Best Demonstration of Innovation in Training” – needless to say it was a very proud moment and we look forward to cheering on the winners at this year’s ceremony (of course hoping we’ll scoop something again!).

Some of the highlights will be a session from Andy Murray on the eagerly awaited PRINCE2 2009, plus a plenary case study by Don Mason, PMO Manager, Emirates Airline Group. Don will be talking how adopting good project management governance has aided the development of Dubai’s airport.
