SSSI event: GIS Program Workshop, Melbourne

By on 23 August, 2011
Today, most government organisations and a growing number of private industries have some type of GIS program in place. They vary from being in their early stages, to the rebuilding or tuning-up phase, to being completed and changed as new technologies and applications emerge.
This workshop is designed to provide guidelines for managing your GIS program. It will look at the various organisational and technical issues program managers must address in order to develop a successful GIS program.
The discussions will include managing key aspects of a GIS program from staffing and budgeting to procuring technology and working with vendors. A variety of real world examples will be presented showing a range of GIS programs and their implementations.
Specific topics include:
  • Program development
  • Project management methods
  • Budgeting
  • Staffing
  • Sustaining program support
  • Managing consultants and vendors
Guest Speaker Dr Peter Woodgate (CEO of CRC for Spatial Information) will present on Governance & Best Practice – How to get it right and pitfalls to avoid.
The workshop will run on Tuesday 13th September, 2011 at The Sebel Albert Park, 65 Queens Road, Melbourne.
