Keynote: The Project Management Ecosystem is Changing by the Day – Are you Ready?

Friday: 8:30 AM – 9:30 AMDavid Barrett

The role of the project manager is not a stable thing.

What used to be normal and acceptable yesterday is not enough today. The landscape ahead of us used to be clear, but things seem to be a little foggy these days. Our career paths, the tools we use, the knowledge and experience we need and even the expectations of all of us as project managers – nothing is the same today and it won’t be like it is tomorrow.

Are you ready?

Key Outcomes:

  • Understand what the future of Project Management looks like
  • Identify project areas where you can progress your career
  • Create a beginning of a plan for your career future.
