PMI Talent & Technology Symposium 2018

June 13, 2018 | Online

The PMI Talent & Technology Symposium 2018 is the fusion of two prior events, the Internet Systems & Technologies Symposium, and the Talent Management Conference. The new event focuses on the impact of rapidly changing technologies on the project management discipline and careers. Participants will better understand how emerging technologies affect their career and skills progression, as well as the evolving needs of hiring managers as they seek out top project management talent.

How to Adapt Your Career to Anticipate and Stay Viable in an Environment of Rapid Technological Change.

Artificial intelligence and automation are quickly removing the most mundane tasks from a project manager’s plate, allowing for greater focus on strategy and the dynamics of interpersonal management of project team members. Blockchain (cryptocurrency) is changing how we securely authenticate decentralized communications and projects. For the individual practitioner these technologies are near-future evolutions that threaten to shake up the entire business and project landscape. These looming technologies are already changing the requirements hiring managers are looking for as they evaluate current and incoming talent.

This year’s combined event focuses on explaining the impact of these technologies in a language all members can understand, and provide advice on how to prepare ones career and skills for the changed environment.
