AMPLA challenges project delivery leaders’ perspectives and instils the right mindset to manage growth and transformation. AMPLA trained project delivery leaders:

  • Have adaptive leadership skills and are self-aware and resilient, to manage the more complex stakeholder, governance and regulatory environments.
  • Can drive a high-performance culture that prioritises the mental health of team members, encourages diversity and provides opportunities for growth.
  • Can leverage technical skills and innovations to unlock productivity, which is needed to ensure projects and the industry deliver better public value and achieve the best outcomes for the community.
  • Can drive the environmental sustainability and social responsibility agenda within their organisation and beyond to meet Australia’s net zero commitments and create meaningful social outcomes as part of major project delivery.

AMPLA’s alumni network provides comprehensive industry connections and ongoing access to the latest project management insights.

Over the four years since it was established in 2019, the current AMPLA program will have trained 229 major project leaders from across Australia by the end of this year.
