you never know but I would say that digital skills are relevant everywhere, so it could be seen rather as an overlay on the current triangle.

In leadership digital is already ubiquitous, virtual teams, communication and soon empathy will help project managers.

In technical PM what I like to call processes, the traditional PM tools might evolve, we have Kanban boards, task planning/tracking and first ideas of digital product twins, like in BIM.

Strategy will benefit from PPM tools and decision support by AI.

I've been recommending to projects that they create their own SharePoint site. The issue is that their staff are really not that adapt at using SharePoint, so the outputs are less than what they could be. We recently stood up a new Data, Information, Analytics group. Within larger organizations, being digitally savvy will be a mandatory to survive.

Basic digital skills are not specific to project management. Its like reading and mathematics. Its a necessary skill but ubiquitous (present everywhere). However, extended digital skills are necessary in the management of digital projects just as extended writing and reading skills are required in journalism and/or as a professional writer but that would fall under 'technical'. I am not sold on the forth point of the talent model.

Dear Peter
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

Do you believe that if you don't have digital skills you will be able to continue to manage projects?
Luis, how do you define digital skills?

I've seen several variants of definitions, some re-branding of existing things, and a bit of hype, but they mostly boil down to some combination of soft skills and technology, for project managers. Are you seeing something that is quantifiably different; something more than just marketing?

It depends what is meant by digit skills. I understand and can effectively use the common software packages typically associated with project management - spreadsheets, scheduling, databases, building information management, computer aided design, slide decks, word processors and even specialty software - but I cannot build one. Most of the project management software was developed during my professional career so I have a basic understanding of the initial needs they respond to and their evolution. I guess that makes me a skilled 'user' of digital tools.
If I didn't have digital user skills I probably wouldn't be able to function in a professional capacity in any industry.

I don't think that's the understanding of PMI or the organizations that participated in the Pulse the Profession 2019 study

Do you know what PMTQ is?
