The Australian Institute of Management - Queensland & Northern Territory (AIM) is a not for profit entity which exists to develop, support, promote and practise the profession of management at all levels. We do this through a five pillar strategy which focuses on being member serving, region serving, profession serving, career serving and future serving. Download AIM's 2013 Strategy on a Page [PDF].
AIM adds capacity to managers by providing opportunities to learn, develop know-how and better understand practical management. We do this through a range of services in business and management training, events and seminars, coaching, research and publications, supported by a specialist management bookshop and library services geared to graduate school education. Our membership base is made up of over 3500 managers in Queensland and the Northern Territory and 550 company members.
We celebrate managers' achievements each year through the Management Excellence Awards, run throughout Queensland and the Northern Territory. Our subsidiaries include TheCyberInstitute, a leading e-learning solutions company, and Management Press, a boutique business publishing house.
On 26 July 1950, 52 businessmen met in Brisbane to lay the foundations for the Queensland branch of the Australian Institute of Management. Originally located in Eagle Street, AIM Queensland took up residence in its current premises in Spring Hill in 1964.
AIM's presence spread throughout the state with courses and events held in Cairns, Gladstone, Mackay, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, and Toowoomba. The Northern Territory branch was established in Darwin in the mid-1970s.
Today there are nine regional centres of AIM that deliver formal and informal learning services to their local communities.
In 2009 AIM established an office on the Gold Coast, a facility which supports training, events, coaching and executive development.
