Career change? What about Project Management?
One profession that presents interesting opportunities as we move towards the future of work is project management.
The latest research by the Project Management Institute (PMI) makes impressive reading. Their ‘Pulse of the Profession 2017’ survey is the result of extensive global research involving over 3000 senior executives and project managers.
The good news is that success rates have risen; that is, less money is being wasted on unsuccessful projects in the companies that took part:
- Organisations are wasting $97 million for every $1 billion invested in projects – a 20% reduction from 1-year earlier and a lot of this is down to better project management but
- Organisations that don’t invest in proper project management waste up to 30 times more than those that do.
