Project Leadership in the context of #NextGenPM
Saturday, Nov 28 at 6:10 pm – 6:40 pm CET

Through the decade ending in 2020, 15.7 million new project management roles have been created (PMI, Pulse of the Profession). The profession has grown dramatically and continues to change dramatically. In today’s rapidly changing and now more competitive environment (not only with fellow PMs, but also with the “future of work”), Project Managers must adapt to the changing realities or fall behind. Agile, Automation, digital transformation, big data – all have a great potential to change the world, but equally put pressure on the workforce of Project Managers. The profession is adapting, and at an individual level, project management professionals must also adapt, and carve their path of professional development. As universities try to prepare graduates for jobs that don’t yet exist, it’s imperative that graduates and young professionals seek out multi-generational insights to drive their personal development in these uncertain times.

According to PMI’s recent Pulse of the Profession® report, only 40 percent of organizations say they prioritize attracting and hiring the young generation of project professionals. What the Future50 list highlights is that this next generation will be crucial to driving value for businesses and society now and in the future.

“As a new generation of leaders rise around the world, we are seeing them have additional guiding principles and motivations when compared to earlier generations. Organizations are already rethinking how they can attract, retain and help foster this generation of talent,” said Sunil Prashara, President and CEO of Project Management Institute. “This next generation of project leaders are deeply committed to driving change across the world – from having a deep sense of social responsibility and improving the environment to driving diversity and inclusion.” Kamil MROZ is one of those individuals featured on this list of some of the biggest change makers of their generation.

Through a coaching approach, this presentation will serve to guide project managers with necessary skills, guidance and insights to be ready for the challenges of the 21st century.
