The Helmsman Institute is committed to improving complex capital asset delivery and sustainment through world-class research, advocacy and industry development.

The Helmsman Institute is the research division of the Helmsman International Group. The Institute draws intellectual rigor and insight through its associations with a number of Australia’s leading universities and education institutions. The research agenda for the Institute is entirely market driven.

This agenda is determined by a number of participating commercial and government organisations. They seek to address their current pressing issues related to their capital asset performance as well as the delivery of programs with strategic, economic and political importance.

The Helmsman Institute is proud to be associated with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM).

The Helmsman Project Performance Diagnostic was developed over a period of 9 years through formal research conducted with UTS and the patronage of a $1.2 million grant from the Australian Research Council.

We are working together with AIPM to make this ground breaking approach the standard for every PMO and Risk Audit Office – with the potential to change the application of Project Management in Australia and beyond.
