The evolving project professional driving sustainability conference
APM South Wales and West of England Branch Conference returned to 2020 after a very successful launch in 2019!
The pertinent question to the project profession is no longer how to deal with external change, but how does the profession itself evolve to continue being as effective in the future.
The 2020 Conference turned the spotlight on the project professionals themselves, and asks how they can adapt to this future and deliver a more sustainable world.
The conference focused on the following key areas:
SKILLS: Harnessing new and disruptive technologies
With technological advances (digitalisation), shifts in society (remote working, virtual teams), and the many unknowns of the future (AI), project professionals need to be open to new ideas, flexible and ready to adapt to change. This will require a combination of soft skills and digital skills.
CULTURE: Navigating the changing professional landscape
The future of the workplace is changing, and as a result the profession will need to change. In many ways, their role will become more important, and the emphasis will be placed onto ‘softer’ skills, such as leadership and emotional intelligence, will play a key role
TOOLS: Exploring innovative systems and processes
Operating in a technology driven world, and the landscape in which the project profession applies our skills and creates our culture, has changed significantly. The tools, processes, and methodologies we utilise and adopt, are developing in line with our evolving environment.
