Is Project Management a viable future?
There is a growing trend for knowledge work to be project-oriented, which means that more people are doing project management as part their day job.
In the future, we will need professional project managers. Managers who do not have a job managing projects.
We will, I believe. There will always be complex and difficult projects that require a steady hand and certain skills to ensure a successful delivery.
Companies must be able to adapt quickly to change and bring products and services to market as the business environment becomes more global, digitalized and uncertain. Project managers are the ones who can make it happen.
I believe project management has a bright future.
Future of project management: Jobs
According to PMI, employers will require nearly 88 million project-related workers by 2027. Global demand for project managers is growing.
PMI is an organization that helps project managers predict the importance of their community. While you should consider their figures in context, they do have a point.
The role of project manager has been changing over time. No longer is it about being able to tick off tasks on a Gantt chart, but rather a position that can lead change within an organization.
Project managers provide an irreplaceable combination of leadership, integration and ethical behavior that is unmatched.
We are still a long way away from the end of project management.
Hybrid project management: The Next Step for Agile
We are seeing a lot of acceptance for hybrid management approaches as a way forward in project management.
Hybrid project management is something that has been around for ages. It’s something I have used. Continuous iterations of development with significant customer involvement at all stages. However, managed within a waterfall governance structure.
Hybrid is not new, but it’s certainly not original.
However, there seems to be a growing acceptance that agile approaches such as Scrum can fit within a mixed framework.
Hybrid project management is a positive development because:
Projects are more complicated than ever
They involve many more people: more than can comfortably fit in a multi-skilled Scrum Team
Large organizations are not equipped to manage their entire operation in an agile manner.

Future project management must be more agile. IPMA research shows that only 47% of organizations use agile delivery methods.
We wonder why we don’t react to change quickly enough.
Future is flexible
Since we first established a formal way to manage projects, the way we do it has changed.
As the environment becomes more complex, uncertain, and even political, we will need more tools to help us deliver projects in such environments.
Project managers, for example, need to respond to:
Stakeholders who have shorter attention spans
Competing demands from stakeholders
Complex and unsolved technical situations
Complex and uncertain geopolitical, socio-political, and geopolitical situations
Higher staff turnover (no job for life anymore)
Greater dem
