In the next five years, the world will see more projects than ever. The reconstruction of the economy, healthcare, social care, and society at large after the devastating global pandemic crisis, will be unprecedented in human history. According to McKinsey, Governments’ have announced $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. However, despite this positive outlook, significant trends will put at stake the project management profession that we have learned to know in the past 40 years. We should consider these signals as an urgent call for profound change in our practices and a much needed in our competencies. A small price to pay compared to the unique opportunity that the project management profession has to lead what I call our new world driven by change.

Things that you found impossible in the past, like opening a business or achieving a goal, became possible after you chose to push ahead. So, it’s really just an opinion of something being impossible. It does not have to be your reality. How do you CREATE a resilient mindset? I like the word create, as you can create things from nothing. When I am stuck, I look at my next steps as IF it were a blank slate and that I control what my vision looks like. I am the creator of my own destiny. So, if YOU have the courage to create your own conditions, then the rainstorm is simply a rainstorm. We’ll discuss creating habits that support you and how to redefine stress so you have a launching pad to action. This webinar launches off of the human ideas from the other 8 Mastering the Arts webinars: Difficult conversations, human-ness in PM, contracts, negotiations, ethics, mediation and conflict resolution.

Project HEADWAY: What We’ve Learned From A Pandemic

PREMIUM presentation
by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

On the date of this webinar, it will have been just passed a year since the world went over the cliff-edge of Covid-19, and found our reality ever-changed. Plunged into a disaster that few saw coming (although the threads and warnings were out there), we have struggled to adapt and cope ever since. Employees and whole organizations transitioned from commuting to working at home, virtually overnight. Supply chains were radically overhauled. Our perceptions of “essential workers” were expanded, as was our awareness of the inequities and challenges that many of these workers face. For project managers, how project work has been coordinated and delivered has been significantly transformed. We have had to innovate on the fly, figuring out strategies to plan, coordinate and engage teams that are not just distant, but facing their own challenges. There have been successes and victories, and there have been challenges and roadblocks. This webinar serves as a much needed review of lessons observed, that hopefully we can all learn from.
