Corporate education clients

My sincere appreciation to you all for your efforts in supporting this important initiative. I have overseen a number of these programs, and have worked with global business schools, i.e. Columbia, INSEAD, Wharton. QUT is comfortably a peer of the aforementioned in the quality of syllabus developed and the manner it was delivered.

Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO)

Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) appointed QUT as their strategic partner in complex project management and strategic procurement education. A number of interrelated and transformational education activities have built a network of change agents in the Commonwealth and the defence industry supply chain that are actively working across complex environments to significantly improve the delivery of defence capabilities.

Our executive masters programs are grounded in systems thinking. They challenge each participant's self-realisation and discipline expertise to develop holistic, cross-disciplinary program and commercial leaders.

International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM)

International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM) is a not-for-profit organisation disseminating research and providing education and support services to businesses and government organisations undertaking the world's most complex projects. Effective program leadership can improve a project's fit-for-purpose and return on capital. A five or ten percent improvement delivers significant additional capability and/or benefits.

In conjunction with ICCPM, QUT offers a range of short courses, including the Systems thinking and complex project management course. This three-day short course introduces organisational and project leaders to the concepts of systems thinking and holistic decision making.

These national and international organisations have already benefited from combining classical reductionist project management with holistic program leadership:

  • Australian Aerospace
  • Australian Defence Joint Logistics Command
  • Australian Defence Material Organisation
  • Boeing Defence Australia
  • BAE Systems (Australia and UK)
  • Canada National Defence with Thales and Lockheed Martin (Ottawa Canada)
  • Defence Acquisition University and Georgetown University (Washington DC USA)

The ICCPM is also leading a proposal for a Collaborative Research Centre for Managing Complex Projects and Programs.

To see people change their behaviours and to make improvements to the way that they manage their people has been one of our great benefits.
