Overwhelmed by how technology is transforming project management? Looking to increase your productivity and learn new tech tools but don't know where to begin? No matter what your focus—medical, manufacturing, product design or otherwise—this virtual day of learning will deliver years of enduring value, with exclusive insights on how project managers are using new technologies.
Project managers face two competing imperatives, 1) to be as fast and efficient as possible, and 2) to improve what you do and how you do it. The first one is about being on budget, on time and on target. The second one is about doing that better than you did it last time, perhaps radically better. In other words innovating the products you develop and the processes you use to do that. In this webinar you will learn a simple intuitive framework—a mindset—for thinking about your work, that enables that innovation. A switch that will make you and your team more adaptive, resilient and resourceful, as you enhance rather than compromise your efficiency.
Innovators have long recognized that constraints very often stimulate or guide the process of creativity and innovation. When ‘the box is the limit’, creativity often comes to the surface organically as the most ultimate and natural solution. This webinar is aimed at every professional who’s convinced that creativity plays a crucial role in the daily work environment, but is also aware of the boundaries that take away the illusion of ‘the sky is the limit’.

Innovation is the fuel for growth in today’s competitive world. But can project managers provide some of that fuel, or does the nature of the job prevent it?
Senior PMI leaders and representatives from PMI’s Global Executive Council recently appeared in an online video series sponsored by World Finance. The videos cover a range of topic areas, including a discussion on how digital transformation is changing the nature of project management.
There’s a problem in our culture’s innovation discussion. We equate innovation almost exclusively with digital technology or new products. What do you need to do? Develop an innovation mindset.
The explosion of app-style productivity tools in business is fundamentally changing how people work. Why is project management not benefitting from those game changers?
While some people seem to be naturally innovative, there are ways to increase your chances of finding innovative solutions—even if you (or your team) do not possess the innovation gene.
Innovation is much more than an executive and marketing buzzword; it can be a serious bottom-line contributor. This is beginning to create challenges for program and project managers. PMs are certainly much more in the spotlight...so we need to prepare.
Throughout 2018, Project Management Institute has explored how organizations are using technologies such as artificial intelligence, the cloud and the internet of things to achieve their goals. While no one single factor can drive benefits realization in these fast-emerging areas, proven project management practices lead to greater success and less waste.
While disruptive innovation started life as simply one model or approach to innovating, it’s quickly evolved to be the only game in town. If you’re not disrupting, it would seem, then you’re just not innovating. How did we get from there to here?
We have seen IoT projects and technologies take off in cities, and with manufacturing and other areas. What does this mean for project managers who want to stay ahead of disruption?
As a project manager, it's helpful to view hype through two distinct lenses: those of the optimist and those of the cynic. Learn how to guide your project team and customers through the hype of disruptive technology to achieve the outcomes you are hoping for.
The Internet of Things is ripe with high-value projects. Explore what the IoT is, key strategic drivers and how you can leverage it for great project value.
The role of project leaders is evolving as disruptive technology frees them from many routine tasks and allows them to focus on communicating and contributing to innovation and strategic thinking. New research from PMI highlights the most in-demand skills and required culture shifts in the digital age.
The initial impact of a disruptive change may be seen as having limited scope and impact, but when a “new kid on the block” technology starts getting a stronger and stronger foothold, a cascading evolutionary effect turns what might be considered an otherwise cute concept into an annoying competitor—and eventually the prodigy that is the identifying hallmark for the business.
Artificial intelligence is not far from becoming a mainstream part of how businesses operate. That’s going to be disruptive, and project management may be impacted more than most areas—and not in the way many of us fear.
Industry edges have blurred, and novel technologies are rapidly emerging. With numerous solutions to choose from, it’s extremely hard to systematically utilize innovative technologies. In this article, the writer shares some tips to help you navigate through disruptive times with a “next practices” approach.
