Watch the video
This virtual world is the new norm, along with hybrid ways of working. Face-to-face interactions within projects are largely lost for now. We will have to manage projects in this way for the foreseeable future. The demand for projects will increase as organisations strive to catch up. Projects will continue to be risky and the demands on project managers will increase.
The challenges that project managers face will continue - challenges such as:
- Workload and having to do more with less
- Technology and being comfortable with it
- The importance of communication
- The importance of leadership and team management in this virtual world
- The importance of a tried and tested project management in this new world.
The talk will also include practical tips for project managers, project sponsors and project teams.
