The shift from project-based management to (digital) product-based management

Since the beginning of time, humanity has never ceased to evolve, nor stopped pushing the boundaries of capability, capacity and productivity. Although actual progress was painstakingly slow for centuries on end, it began accelerating incrementally this past century to finally reach the outstanding speed it has achieved today. The rate of progress is such that change has become the new constant; and with change, comes the need for adaptation. The story behind this white paper reflects just one of these particular adaptations, which, being at the heart of business management is unavoidably changing the core focus of companies striving to adapt to today’s digital realities.

10 steps to optimally "manage" workload management

Workload management is one of the crucial pillars of project management that is often underestimated and readily dismissed.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Future of Project Management

Although the term has been around for several decades now; for many, it still holds a science fiction ring to it. With varying understandings and interpretations of the concept it’s no surprise that feelings towards AI continue to be vastly mixed, even today.

And, then there are those who are fantasizing about the scope of potential advance in all areas of our lives from science and healthcare to entertainment and travel.

How to Prepare For Project Initiation

Project initiation is when most project managers get involved in a project for the first time. The project itself might have been talked about for months, and has probably spent time being scrutinized by senior management. Your leadership team might have seen several versions of the business case and finally they’ve made the decision to go ahead with this piece of work.

That’s when a project manager normally gets involved, although sometimes project managers assist with preparing the business case too. Once that business case is approved the hard work really begins. In this white paper, we set out the essentials to have in place prior to beginning the execution of any project including set up of the team and tools, and securing sponsorship.
