The year 2030. What will our world look like? Has our life been fully digitalized by then, or have we, perhaps even intentionally, retained a touch of analogy?
If you look at current technological developments, in less than 10 years we’ ll quickly see ourselves in the sci-fi worlds we know from movies or books. The robot that does the housework, the virtual world as a substitute for holidays on the beach. But how does the future look in our day-to-day work? How can we manage these disruptive projects and what skills does a project manager need in 2030?
If managers don’t change their way of thinking, they can’t properly perceive and interpret new situations. In addition, both new skill sets and new tool sets are needed when the environment is disrupted in the digital age.
The tools for digital change are manifold. Innovation-Profiler and Future Strategist Alexander Pinker took the visitors of the PMI’s “Passion of the Profession” conference on a journey into the world of tomorrow and gave them insights into how the project manager should be in 2030, what his qualifications have to be and how he will continue to be successful in the project management of the future.
