J. LeRoy Ward, executive vice president in Product Strategy & Management for ESI International, sees 10 trends affecting project management this year.
“As the project environment grows in complexity, project management will require team, stakeholder and executive collaboration in 2012 like never before,” he says. “On-the-job application of training, custom-made project approaches, innovative project tools and smarter resource management will be essential for driving the greatest business impact. Not only project management, but also the definition of ‘project success’ has changed to encompass more than the triple constraint.”
Some of his trends:
>> Program management will gain momentum, but resources remain in short supply.
>> Collaboration software solutions will become an essential business tool for project teams.
>> Learning transfer will become the new mantra, but with little structured application.
>> Smarter project investments will require a stronger marriage between project management and business process management.
“From the ascendancy of social media to the structured implementation of collaboration tools by the P.M.O. and the steady rise of communities of practice, we are fast approaching a tipping point,” says Ward. “Those project organizations that do not exploit such collaborative channels and technology will risk missing the most promising combination of force multipliers of the decade.”
