Abstract: Are you ready for the Project Economy? Do you have the skills you need to turn ideas into reality? Are you able to successfully lead teams under pressure to produce business value? Can you do this and relax enough to sleep at night? The new PMP® exam content includes a significant amount of agile, and yes, we are still going to need the basics. Traditional project management works when properly applied. An agile mindset can and should be applied to any project environment regardless of the development life cycle!

The focus on agility, resilience and leadership will continue to emerge as agile has now become more than a lifecycle - when successfully implemented agility is a way of life. The Project Economy is here, and it requires a high-level of engagement from all stakeholders. Our focus is changing from process groups and knowledge areas to People, Process, and the Business Environment.

Join us for this brief presentation where we will review the recent changes and current evolution taking place within the project management industry to help you stay current and differentiate between fact and fashion when it comes to project management techniques. As President Lincoln (and Peter Drucker) said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it”.
