Many programmes today are focused primarily on projects. We need to move to a situation where programmes have a range of components, of which a ‘project’ is just one. These ‘non-project’ components are often termed ‘other work’ or ‘other related’ work and can include support services (like a PMO), on-going improvement initiatives, such as 6Sigma and business as usual operations, such as service or product delivery.
We, as human beings, need physical interaction, but improving our virtual skills will be necessary. We, as project managers, need to engage people in our teams to succeed. I believe that project managers will need to make an effort to establish clear guidelines, rules, and procedures to be used by team members. It will require extra effort from both parts, but I guess it will be the way.
The impact of projects and project management on our society will increase. Almost 40% in every we do (in time and money) is project management related. But the way we’re executing our projects is changing; there’s a different view on (project management) leadership. Adaptive leadership is the new normal for the future.
Good project management is vital for successfully delivering much more change for much less money since poor project management leads to rework, delays, late delivery, over-run budget, with fewer benefits and squandering precious resources.
project management profession is, in many ways, the future of work. I would add that it is global, dynamic, exciting and also fun, therefore a great and global profession to be involved in.
