PREMIUM webinar

By 2025, regardless of industry or sector, senior leaders and managers will spend at least 60% of their time selecting, prioritizing, and driving the execution of projects. In fact, soon "we will all become project leaders, but many of us are not prepared for this shift.” According to recent research, the number of individuals working in project-based roles will increase from 66 million (in 2017) to 88 million (forecast 2027). And the value of project-oriented economic activity worldwide will grow from $12 trillion (in 2013) to $20 trillion (forecast 2027). Those are millions of projects requiring millions of project leaders per year. In this landscape the percentage of work activities performed as part of projects is markedly increasing as projects are becoming the essential model to deliver change and create value around the world.

During the webinar, we will discuss some of the implications arising from the findings of this study, explore suggestions for improving current assurance processes in practice and identify recommendations for future research.
