The John Grill Institute for Project Leadership is a global leader in research and executive education on how we conceive, set-up, deliver and benefit from projects. Founded through a generous donation by John Grill, we are building leadership capability and capacity to transform the performance of projects.
Drawing on the strong research base at the University of Sydney, we bring together leading industry, government, policy and research. We deliver world-class executive education and support our growing network of alumni as they lead projects.
Through our flagship Executive Leadership in Major Projects program, customised courses, and public events, we seek to build capacity to better understand the practice of project leadership, building on the knowledge bank generated since our start as a Centre. We are becoming recognised in Australia and internationally as a go-to place for advice on project sponsorship, leadership and governance underpinned by research and research-led executive education.
As Director, Professor Jennifer Whyte brings substantial experience of leading interdisciplinary research teams to have impact on practice, working closely with industry, government and policy, collaborating across universities, convening Executive Education and running events with senior industry, policymakers and ministers. Please see our events, including masterclasses and an online symposium on Project Leadership for a Changing World on 10 November 2021.
