A couple of networks that are especially important to us
Project Inspiration (Projektnäring in swedish)
Founded in early 2011, Project Inspiration is an ambitious investment in skills development meet-ups in project management. The aim of Project Inspiration is to arrange a couple of skills development meet-ups per year to provide a meeting place for project professionals that continuously offers new inspiration and knowledge. Those who participate regularly in Project Inspiration get a unique opportunity to build their own network with other project professionals in Sweden.
In order to avoid the need for financing from exhibitors and sponsors, the meet-ups do cost money. Project Inspiration is non-profit where any surplus goes to the carrying out of upcoming meet-ups. The aim is that participants have an opportunity to influence the direction of upcoming meet-ups. Since 2012, the Swedish Project Academy appoints the Project Manager of the Year in Sweden at the Project Inspiration autumn meet-up.

Swedish Project Academy
The Swedish Project Academy aims to promote development and application of project work for Swedish businesses. Since 1994, the Academy has been a meeting place for highly skilled people in project management. The members of the Academy are engineers, economists, behavioral scientists and humanists from the business world, public administration, and universities, and they know that it is possible for businesses and administrations to become more efficient by developing how to think about projects.
Since 1994, our consultant Mats Ragnarsson has been a member of the Academy.
Svenskt Projektforum has for almost 50 years worked on strengthening and developing the role of projects for businesses and organisations. They do this by being a meeting place for people who are responsible for or are working in projects. For example, they offer a members’ magazine called “Projektvärlden”, and host seminars and symposia. They also certify a large number of project managers annually in accordance to IPMA.
We are a Corporate Member at Svenskt Projektforum and many of our hired consultants are thus members of the association.
Everybody at Wenell believes that IRNOP is one of the most interesting networks internationally in terms of research about projects. IRNOP is an abbreviation that stands for International Research Network on Organizing by Projects.
Network members come from all over the world. Although the network is mainly for scientifically inclined people, the network also attracts many practitioners.
We participate actively at conferences hosted by IRNOP. To us, it’s an important exchange of ideas for our development.
Fair Enterprise Network
In 2008, we entered into a new collaboration with a business group in Nepal called Fair Enterprise Network. They work for fair trade and for creating a clean environment in Kathmandu.
Our ambitions are to develop our future collaboration by benefiting from each other’s unique opportunities and combining these to create concrete results that make a real difference for people. If you’re looking for more information, please talk to your contact at Wenell and we’ll tell you more about an exciting project that makes a difference. The meeting between Wenell and Fair Enterprise Network is especially important to us.
