For those project management professionals in the construction industry, one of the main events in your calendar each year will be the annual Construction CPM Conference. This years event will be held on January 21-24 at the Swan & Dolphin Resort on Walt Disney World, Florida.
Over the course of this event, you will rub shoulders with fellow construction professionals, vendors and of course, learn the latest thinking from thought leaders. There is great opportunity to directly connect with most of the tool vendors who are offering training and support sessions.
This years keynote speaker is Dick Faris from Oracle’s Primavera Global Business Unit and original co-founder of Primavera. Dick will be sharing with us his vision on the future of CPM (Critical Path Method) scheduling software, no doubt hinting at things to come in Primavera P6.
Dick will also host a town hall meeting reviewing the User Wish List and taking questions on the road map for Oracle and Primavera product lines.
