Project managers must look at the recent changes in the discipline and translate those into a plan for their professional development.
The key to the future for project managers are to acquire the soft skills necessary to aspire to new levels of management in organizational development, sociology, business management, and leadership.
Tomorrow’s project manager will look very different from today’s. It’s not just about physical location or the technology we use to communicate, it’s in the values and expectations of each individual as a leader.
The results is when a project manager invests today in their own professional development is surely on the path to becoming the next successful CEO of tomorrow.
