From Gig economy to Project economy
Network:2446



The Project Economy is where people deliver value. They have the skills and capabilities to turn ideas into reality – no matter what kind of project they’re working on. What are those skills and capabilities ? Do they change as we move from Gig economy to Project economy ? What are your thoughts ?

My very general opinion is the Project Economy is building on the value prop of what Agile Methodology has introduced at the project level and expanded it to a macro level, changing the way corporations prioritize what projects to work on - focusing on value. So as far as skills go, I don't think there's a lot of change there. Project execution will always require the skills and techniques we are all familiar with.
Capabilities however change in that people need to be capable of thinking differently and prioritizing on value. Corporations need to adjust their structure to some sort of Agile framework (SAFe for example) to help adopt a new way of thinking.

I'd suggest that the skills relate to higher levels of flexibility as Ron Safian shared in his keynote address the 2nd day of the Global Conference. Moving from being specialists to being generalizing specialists who are always learning and upskilling would help.

Beyond that, continued focus on the soft skills.

The skills and capabilities are mostly soft. It's about your ability to be motivated, to be curious and to be persistent. It's about not being embarassed to ask "stupid" questions.

Dear Priya
Interesting reflection.
Thanks for the questions that lead us to reflect
I worked on projects all my life.
What will companies and / or organizations look like in a project economy?
Will companies and / or organizations change from functional or matrix to projected?
I believe that operations will continue to add value to the economy.
What will the organic structure of these companies and / or organizations look like?

The global economy has caused a shift again in how organizations do business. The impacts are already being seen across the globe; there is no shortage of work...it's just different kinds of work that will require a different set of skill sets.

Priya -

you've stumped me now - what are pie shaped skills? Given that it's approaching Canadian Thanksgiving, the only pie on my mind is Pumpkin Pie :-)

I would certainly support the need for moving from I to T-skilled contributors.

Sorry it is not pie - it is pi. Apologies for stumping you. I think I was also thinking about the pumpkin pie given that Diwali is around the corner for us as well.

Kiron,

It's a translation confusion, it's Pi and relates to a multi-skilled Agile team member

"The Pi shape is unique and makes an excellent metaphor for team members that are truly adaptive. Rather than one area of expertise"
