5 Disruptive Trends in Project Management
2021 and Beyond
ANR Newsletter #56
I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well.
In the next five years, the world will see more projects than ever. According to McKinsey, Governments’ allocated $10 trillion in reconstruction funds just in the first two months of the crisis, which is three times more than the response to the 2008–09 financial crisis. These are millions of projects, which will need millions of project managers; the confirmation of a term I conceived in 2017: The Project Economy.
These are the five disruptive trends that will impact the field of projects and project management:
1. The end of Job Descriptions, the start of Project Roles
2. From Project Manager to Strategy Implementation Professionals
3. Expanding our Toolkit, it is not Waterfall or Agile; it is both and more
4. The Project Management Office: Transform Now or Game Over
5. Artificial Intelligence will radically disrupt project management soon; we have to embrace technology now
