PPM (Project and Portfolio Management) professionals face the need to change focus, from controlling the delivery of scope to achieving business outcomes. The tools and approaches that have been used for PPM will simply not work in a future that has already arrived. The adoption of agile, increased investment in digitalization, and the need for speed and agility are creating the “perfect storm” predicted by Gartner, Ignoring these trends is not an option. PPM professionals have to change focus, from scope to business outcomes, from the reduction of uncertainty to embracing and leveraging uncertainty, encouraging innovation, and systematically executing strategy towards the realization of financial value. This presentation presents a framework that focuses on business outcomes, instead of scope, as the unit to plan and track, from project to portfolio levels. This way, funding is allocated to outcomes, and delivery is tracked based on its impact on planned impact to outcomes. The session presents a number of tools and techniques that can be used to build a portfolio management framework that focuses on business value and treats projects as investments. This includes how to plan and track benefits for agile projects. Finally, the session explores the cultural aspects involving in this change in perspective and how current traits found in organizational cultures explain the status-quo. The session presents the values that are fundamental to succeed in implementing an outcome-driven organization.
Educators are continually searching for techniques to improve knowledge retention, especially during the pandemic. Research shows that poor knowledge retention exists because teaching typically follows a traditional waterfall approach, which studies show to be ineffective. The “learn and forget” style of rote learning should be discouraged. Employers are frustrated as they find themselves retraining new hires on concepts that should have been learned in schools. Employing agile techniques in pedagogical practices increases knowledge retention. Delivering a course in order of importance, with constant stakeholder collaboration, and adapting the delivery based on feedback increases learning and knowledge retention. Also, educators should use a test-driven development approach with continuous planning and frequent feedback to improve learning and satisfaction.
Statistics show that globally about 33% of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted. On the other hand, we have about 11 % of world suffering from malnutrition and hunger. According to UN based WHO, even if 25 % of the food wasted is saved then it can alleviate the hunger problem. The problem is acute and is obvious but yet organizations and people have not come to grips with it. Thankfully, during the last few years the situation is changing.
The world of work is changing, disruptive technologies are accelerating change at unprecedented speed rendering many traditional ways of doing work obsolete. This change is causing ripple effects forcing every organization and their staff to assess how they should compete in this new world of work. Project Managers are no exception to this change, they are adapting and demonstrating their relevance by focusing on value delivery and strategy execution and in doing so becoming more strategic. In the new world of work, technology will enable Project Manager’s to become free from administrative tasks and focus more on strategic tasks that deliver business value through their projects and program. As knowledge workers, they will seek more personal development and in return they will expect organizations to support their growth.

Each year, the strategy team at the Project Management Institute conducts an assessment of global, long-term trends across a range of key issue areas. Conducted since 2007, this annual report examines and evaluates the global trajectory of major trends in everything from climate change to shifting demographics—and explores how these trends are impacting the world of project management and project professionals.
The nature, number and focus of projects is now extremely volatile. That requires PMOs to take a different approach to how they enable project success.
Reaching our PM potential in uncertain times requires one to recognize their untapped potential, especially that which rests beyond the traditional operational perspectives of project management. So what are we waiting for?
Developing and executing strategies is part of what all project-driven enterprises do, but it’s not enough. Organizations need to have values—they need to stand for something. Is your strategy built on priorities or values?
What impact has the last six months had on investments and advancements in information technology? How has the pandemic cut into the budgets and spending plans of corporations?
The pandemic has hammered the world economy hard. The following methods have proven to be practical cost-saving possibilities—and might inspire you. Adopt what fits your business the best and, hopefully, cope with the difficulties together with your teams.
In The Project Economy, technology drives a lot of the disruption—and progress. You need to be able to overcome the various barriers that are preventing you from being more prepared for the project-driven economy of the future. How ready are you to embrace technology disruption?
Every once in a while, we get into an extensive debate about the role, presence, impact and future of the project economy. But to put not too fine a point on it: We have always lived in a project economy. It's just that it hasn't been very evenly distributed.
The Project Economy outlined in 2019 was driven from the convergence of tech, energy and infrastructure. COVID-19 forced a digital upskilling and appreciation for alternative energy that has accelerated the transition.
The more uncertain the times, the more adaptability we need. We need to recognize that things have changed. In the age of COVID-19, we don’t know when we will find a new “normal"—which is probably longer away than we might like.
As The Project Economy reimagines business around the concept of projects, the disruption to operations increases. The project delivery function needs to manage that if an organization is going to succeed.
With projects beginning to take center stage in many organizations, it's only logical that everyone hone their project-thinking skills, to view routine workflows and value-streams through the lens of the project manager.
In order to manage innovation to meet global challenges, organizations should implement an approach that joins together the management of individual projects, integrates them to the organizational project perspective for delivery and governance, and aligns them to the organizational strategy.
Innovation is going to be key in the ability of an organization to recover. The depth of the impact that the pandemic has had on most industries means that resuming the pre-pandemic strategic priorities simply won’t work. Agile teams are the key to making that happen.
By now we are all immersed in the impact COVID-19 is having on the global health and economy—and technology is playing a vital role in the fight to stop the pandemic from spreading.
