In today’s fast paced work environment, Project managers face a number of familiar challenges: meeting project milestones and deadlines, managing changes, staying on budget, ethics, managing different project stakeholder expectations among many others.
In addition, technology is having an increasing impact on the way projects are managed. Consider for example the impact of smartphones, tablets and text messaging (SMS), making it easier to keep track of project metrics at any point of a project and product lifecycle. The technology makes it even easier and seamless for different project stakeholders to communicate and share information in new and creative ways that were simply not possible before.
Sharing key metrics on demand, such as is the project schedule variance (SV) and/or cost variance (CV), are critical to making different stakeholders intimately aware of the progress of the project, whether their expectations are being met, and enabling decisions on which project should get the go ahead.
Mobile technology, Internet of Things (IoT), and now Artificial Intelligence (AI) are making it easier than ever to share information, expectations, assist the project manager in making key decisions and track project metrics such as quality standards.
Project Managers have to keep up with trends and adapt their management styles to incorporate new trends and new ways of doing their work in the most effective way possible.
Project Management strategies will be discussed that allow for:
- more effective communication
- taking the pulse of the project at any given time
- managing different stakeholder and client expectations
- keeping up to date on the latest project management trends and how they can be incorporated in their practice.
