Topic:

Architecting the Future Through Project Management

Abstract:

Project managers and project management have been shaping the future for centuries. From the structures we know as the wonders of the world to the international space station, to the technologies that brought us the cloud, smart phones and smart pads, project managers have been instrumental in creating the environment we live and work in today. As the demands of the business environment change and the needs of our social communities become more complex the future will also become more challenging.  Today’s demands drive the future and the future beckons the project manager to become more creative, innovative, and adaptive.  Sustainability, mega projects, natural disasters, economic uncertainties, and risk are the new project management playing field and that field will continue to change like the stairways of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle, moving and shifting continuously.  The future will require imagination, skill, discipline, adaptive leadership, and a willingness not only to accept change but to drive it. This presentation focuses on the importance of project management and the need for skilled professional project managers to take new ideas and creative solutions from concept to reality, architecting a future environment that is sustainable and adaptable to meet the needs of our global community.
