The Project Revolution: The Implications of the Silent Disruption That Is Taking Place and the New Skills Needed to Adapt
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. The so-called gig economy is also driven by projects.

The Intelligence Community (IC) is an enormous, departmentally diverse community in numerous agencies, and covers a large range of individual intelligence efforts. Both law enforcement and the military rely on and make up part of the IC. Though the efforts are continuous and cyclical, there are numerous one-time activities that are not replicable, and are designed to answer specific questions for policy makers and other consumers of intelligence. The sum effect of an IC PMO may prove invaluable when trying to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the IC.
