Wow there really is an acronym for everything these days ;)
Does this only refer to the technology used to manage a project or to technology associated with the project deliverables?
If it is the first then I would say that the implementation of collaboration and management platforms would be key i.e. making use of Jira, Trello or whatever toolset the organization/PMO mandates as a standard. I am currently in the process of implementing MS Teams for specific projects to allow team members to collaborate remotely more efficiently.
If it is the latter then I have always believed that the PM should equip themselves to a level where they understand what they are working with but not necessarily to an SME level. Whenever I start a project with new or unknown technology I find a crash course that will help me get up to speed with the lingo and concepts.
The current pandemic provides some great examples of this. For teams who were used to working in person using physical collaboration methods (e.g. whiteboards, sticky notes), a PM who is comfortable with solutions such as Miro or even the rudimentary whiteboard capabilities of desktop video conferencing solutions as well as persistent chat platforms like MS Teams or Slack and can help the team to transition effectively to these would be demonstrating a higher level of PMTQ than a PM who says things like "You can't teach an old dog new tricks!".
My duty in my actual work place is exactly that due to I am managing a program that is the pillar behind the company strategy in that way. It was related to our general strategy behind implemening Agile to gain into agility that was started 5 years ago. It is a component on that.
I've never heard before about this acronym. Where did you learn about it for the first time?
It seems that it mentioned in the PMI Pulse of Profesion 2019 / 2020 according to this source (https://www.corpexcellence.com/pmi-pulse-o...rt-2019-2020/).
