About the PPIR Program

Program history and team

The PPIR Program commenced as a project of The Warren Centre in June 2007. The project was funded by sponsors to research, workshop and provide a strategy to address specific concerns in the engineering profession and industry. In November 2009 The Warren Centre launched the report, Professional Performance Innovation and Risk in Australian Engineering Practice. During the period 2010 to 2014, extensive work was undertaken by volunteer teams to promote the PPIR philosophy, and to develop, document and trial the engineer training and industry adoption programs associated with the PPIR Program.

Following the completion of the development phases in April 2015, the PPIR Program is being introduced broadly for adoption by the Australian engineering industry and profession.

The PPIR Program is run under the auspices of The Warren Centre through the PPIR Advisory Board, which includes The Warren Centre executives, consultant/trainers, and non-executive members. This core team coordinates the activities of the PPIR Program together with the input of a broad group of volunteers, industry champions and supporting associations.
