Adam Skinner, P2 Consulting
18:30 - Presentation
20:00 - Close
There is not a single profession that hasn’t been fundamentally changed by the technological revolution, from how we shop to how we build to how we spend our leisure time and money.
Given the changes that have occurred in other professions the project management profession has remained relatively unchanged. But the future is catching up with project management with the launch of new tools, technologies and techniques and we are seeing the start of what will be utterly fundamental changes to how to do ‘project management’.
In this session, Adam Skinner will explore what the rise of machine learning, automation and modern understandings of organisational psychology imply for how we do change and what skills the future project manager will need to grasp and master to stay relevant and impactful.
