As technology continues to advance at exponential rates, organisations must adapt to the digital landscape or risk getting left behind. Change isn't always easy, but when it comes to the success of your projects, your team members, and your company, a little self-imposed disruption is worth it in the long run.
While a digital transformation strategy starts in the C-suite, the execution is vital, and where project managers must take the wheel. As the executive muscle of any organisation, project managers are responsible for implementing senior leadership's vision and deploying the company's new digital capabilities. From a PM perspective, digital transformation isn't something to be feared. Yes, it will take time, effort, and a bit of disruption. But it will also empower you as a project manager to better manage team members, more efficiently deliver projects, and, ultimately, better serve your company's customers and clients.
Companies that have transformed their business processes to meet the rigors of the digital world are finding it much easier to compete. Now the digital wave is hitting the day-to-day activities of project management. Digital project managers develop a more comprehensive view of the project management lifecycle and understand how to leverage people, processes and technology to help their organisations achieve digital transformation. In this session, we will discuss how the landscape is changing rapidly and how project management professionals must learn to adopt.
