About the Presentation

Project management is evolving to keep up with the speed of innovation, transformation, and digitization sweeping through our business world. The ways we have worked in the past are no longer sufficient. Contrary to pre-pandemic work, a large percentage of our projects have a blend of remote and on-site members. Keeping this type of team efficient and engaged adds challenges and complexity to delivering value. Methodologies that we have used in the past may feel restrictive as organizations require more creativity and innovation to remain competitive. One way to increase productivity is by leveraging artificial intelligence to improve our decision making and our efficiency. This presentation will address each of these aspects of our evolving profession and offer suggestions for navigating current and future ways of working on projects. 

Key Takeaways

  • Identify practical tips for working with remote and in-person blended teams.  
  • Move beyond methodologies into a truly hybrid way of working. 
  • Broaden our definition of project teams to include humans and non-humans.
