How to engage

Partner with us or join our community
Work with us to transform the way that projects are delivered, engaging through our research, executive education and engagement activities.

We work closely with industry, government and policy organisations to transform project-based industries, taking lessons on project leadership across sectors. We also see society, alumni and the international research communities as key stakeholders in our work. 

There are a number of ways you can join our community through our research, executive education, alumni network and events.

Through our research

Connect with us to develop new insights into project leadership in a changing world. We are keen to work with leading organisations and be part of the innovation ecosystem that works together to transform practices in project-based industries. We have seen how powerful it can be to bring together research, government and industry. We are keen to work with:

Capable owners, government departments, project sponsors, and delivery chains. To enable organisations to successfully deliver large-scale projects globally, we set out to partner with leading organisations across infrastructure, energy, aviation, mining, technology, banking and finance to provide support to their Senior Executives.

We have a set of experienced practitioners with deep knowledge and experience in leading major projects, portfolios and programs with whom we work, informing our research through our board, events, and executive education and through affiliate membership of the Institute.
