The Project Manifesto - The Guiding Principles of the Project Economy
We are witnessing the rise of projects as the main unit of work, as well as the essential model to deliver change and create value for individuals, organizations, and society at large. Despite this surge in project activities and project spending, the risk of project failure continues to be huge and will continue to increase unless organizations and governments embrace advanced project leadership practices. Widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces is a great example. In contrast, project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts. Under these circumstances, it is not surprising that we saw the rise of agile, triggered by the Agile Manifesto, in February 2001 by 17 independent-minded software practitioners. Considering that this year is the 50th Anniversary of the creation of the Project Management Institute, it is time that we co-create The Project Manifesto.
The purpose of this webinar is to explain what is The Project Economy, the consequences and opportunities, as well as the way project managers will need to adapt to be successful in this new era. We will look at 12 guiding principles, their rationale, examples and implications. The session will be highly interactive, asking for your views and suggestions, with the ultimate goal of co-creation of the around guiding principles.
The key learning objectives are:
• Understand what is The Project Economy
• Learn and discuss 12 guiding principles
• Understand opportunities this era brings to project managers
