Event Topic: The New Age of Project Management

Synopsis:
Leaders in Project Management embrace adaptation to thrive with inevitable change. So, with the advent of more automation, robotization, transformation and Artificial Intelligence, we ask ourselves: what can project managers be expected to face, and how will it affect project management practices in the public sector?

Technology and new business processes continue to revitalize the role of the project manager, strengthening project delivery with requirements’ tracking systems, automation and analytical project risk as well as life simulation programs.  As project managers, we should look to realign our strengths and enhance our existing skill set. The question is: what skills and practices should we focus on to compete within an environment that is heavily invested in technology, and to meet business practice change needs? This event is an opportunity to look towards innovation and be a step ahead of the game. Discover the skills, knowledge and strategies project managers should advance to facilitate future survival and growth in light of technological, business and competitive world changes and emerging trends.
