Today all organizations depend on technological innovation in order to sustain their existence. Analysis of emerging technologies and identification of those technologies with the greatest potential is essential to being prepared for upcoming projects. The objective of this blog is to establish future oriented technology analysis and insights. This blog was established to provide program and project managers with information about these emerging technologies. These emerging technologies have far reaching repercussions for program and project managers. This blog will jump-start the learning process and allow program and project managers to become proactive.
Over the past few weeks this blog has covered six emerging technologies. This included 3D Printing, Artificial Intelligence, Connected Vehicles, Internet of Things (IoT), Robotics, and Wearable Technology. Combined these technologies will make-up a substantial number of programs and projects in the near future. This will be a growing trend over the next several (3 to 5) years. It is important for program and project managers to be at least acquainted with these technologies given the role they will play in these initiatives. It is also important to remember that unlike our typical programs and projects, we do NOT have direct experience, metrics and measures for initiatives including these emerging technologies. That adds risk! We will be embarking on uncharted territories. ProjectManagement.com is an excellent place for all program and project managers to share their experiences and key leanings as each embarks on this new journey. I hope to continue this BLOG in an effort to help in the global collaborative effort that I believe is necessary for all PMs to reduce risks and fulfill the professional duties and responsibilities assigned to as managers of emerging technology enabled programs and projects. After all, they are delivering our future!
