Follow-up on the IAPM Network Meeting in Berlin of 17 June 2015 on the subject of “MOVING AHEAD WITH ENERGY“

Hosted by Senior Official W. Feldt and Official I. Petermann, the event’s venue was the administrative building of Vattenfall’s Wilmersdorf Power Station and it kicked off with a guided tour.
The tour included some of the power station’s complexes and gave participants insights into its processes, demonstrating how the power station can meet its supply obligations with the minimum of personnel. Wilmersdorf performs a special function as the hydraulic hub for heat supply to adjacent districts.
The tour also explained how the activities and processes involved in modernising the power station, which was built in 1971, were planned and implemented.
Special emphasis was given to the weighty responsibilities falling to the project management team as a result of the project’s complexity, and the fact that it was implemented while the power station remained in operation. The coordination and networking of operational structures and project structures played a special role in this respect.
Then participants attended an interesting interactive workshop that gave both experienced and less experienced project managers the chance to reflect, gain input and extend their knowledge.
Entrepreneur, project manager and coach, Benjamin Michels, presented the “Energy Map”, a diagnostic tool used to metaphorically measure a system’s energy status - in our case the participants in their project manager roles. Later on the “Focus Five“ method for planning objective meetings in (project) teams was presented.
There was unanimous positive feedback from all the participants of this interesting and insightful workshop.
It was a very successful evening, including an informal get-together at the end, that has raised the IAPM’s profile in the Berlin region.
