pma young crew Management Board

The pma young crew management board consists of four young crew members, who all assume their positions on a volunteer basis. Amongst others, their responsibilities include the organisation of events, the coordination of marketing activities for the pma young crew or the acquisition of new young crew members.


Michaela Obersriebnig, MSc

Since 2018 Michaela is the chair of the austrian pma young crew. She is an active young crew member for the 4th year now and was a member of the management board in 2017. "The pma youg crew is a network of young and motivated project managers who are early in their careers. Interaction with people of the same mind set and the same interests, as well as the chance to add to the project management know-how is my motivation to be engaged in the young crew." When she is not spending her time at pma or pma young crew events, Michaela is singing in a choir and in an all female trio in Vienna. She is always on the road  (for work and leisure) and you can hardly ever see her "doing nothing". Michaela  studied molecular biology and is working as a Clinical Research Associate / Project Manager for clinical trials. Michaela has already experienced the 2018 motto of the young crew "internationality" as she spent a semester studying in Copenhagen and was working in a laboratory in Seattle for a year. She sees the challenge in project management to motivate a team of different people to work towards a common goal.


Philip Bargiel, BSc, zJPM

"Wrong and right decisions are part of everyday work as a project manager." Since 2016 Philip is a part of the pma young crew and since 2018 a part of the young crew management board. In his opinion the young crew helps with facing the decisions a project manager has to make. Together with the management board he is responsible for the financial planning throughout the year, organizing events and planning of the young crew's marketing activities. His hobbies include dancing, playing tennis and foreign languages. Philip is working in IT governance and controls the project portfolio for international IT-security projects in a globally operating audit organiziation called Deloitte. As a result, he decided to start a graduate study program in information systems management. This enables him a better understanding and a scientific analysis in project prioritization theories. According to Philip the exciting thing about project management is to find a common language and decisions for new and unexplored dynamics, to meet goals and thereby create added value.


Max Doblinger, MSc, zJPM

Max is an active member of the pma young crew since 2016 and part of the pma young crew management board 2018. He supports the board by organizing events with companies (pma young crew meets PM experience) and the pma young crew workshop. During his studies he collected international experience in China and Ireland. For Max the greatest challenge in project management is combining the different stakeholder interests and interpretations into a common goal and to adapt to change. In his professional life Max combines project management in software development with quality management and cutting edge research in human stem cell biotechnology.
