The Impact of Revolutionary Change on Project Managers & Project Management
Every aspect of human existence, every vertical market, and every functional discipline is experiencing revolutionary change. In the 1990’s we “reengineered” and “webified”. In the aughts [2000-2009] we “mobilized”. In the first half of the second decade of the 21st century we “datified”. In 2017 we deal with the impacts of machine learning and conversational A.I. [e.g., Alexa, Google Home, Cortana and Siri]. Award-winning futurist and best-selling author Thornton May will explore what all this change means for project managers and project management.
This month, Neil covers two topics on Agile and Project Management. Part 1 discusses some of the reasons why Agile teams run into problems and how to overcome them. Part 2 discusses some of the project manager traits that lead projects (agile or not) to either be successful or run into problems.
Eric Lucas will present methods for identifying and finding good Project Manager candidates and will provide tips on how to interview for a Project Manager position from both the hiring manager and the candidate’s perspective. During the second half of the meeting, we will have an open forum with local recruiters answering questions on the local market, sourcing candidates, and getting a Project Manager position. Great advice for candidates and for hiring managers!
