Coronavirus diaries: it’s time to redefine the PM job spec
Coding is out, so is PRINCE2, but social influence is rising up the list of must-have PM skills, writes Mike Wild
Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, national lockdowns and a global economy that is projected to contract more than during the 2008/09 financial crisis, you would be forgiven for questioning why anyone would be thinking about job specifications right now.
While some of us are busier than ever, others have the time to reflect on the big conversation kicked off by APM concerning the future of the project profession, not least the skills required to succeed in the future. Now more than ever, organisations are looking at their strengths and considering whether they have the right skills to move forward into the 2020s.
