The State of Project Management
It’s exciting to think about what global trends and technological changes are out there and how they will impact our profession and the potential for advancements and improvements in our ability to complete SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS.
Project management is positioned to be a perfect vehicle to turn an organizations’ strategy into tangible results. And, truly effective organizations will make sure their project and program managers have the right skills to drive and navigate change in a fast-paced environment. In this year’s [PMI] “2018 Pulse of the Profession®”, it reinforces that using Project Management effectively can be a competitive advantage for organizations. Not only is this important to me because that is the purpose of my business, but I truly believe this is a great profession and one where those holding the role are able to make an impact within their organization and/or build for themselves a bridge to a management level position. You spend so much of your life at work, it’s important to see the value in what you are doing!
Also increased awareness and demand for PMP’s (Certified Project Management Professionals) has helped standardize project management education around the globe.
