The future of the business world and where project management could fit in
27th March 2019 at 6 pm
University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London, NW1 5LS
Main Speaker: Mark Kozak-Holland
If you have invested your career into project management then you are probably naturally curious as to what the profession has in store for the next 20 years. Despite a massive global growth in project management, the future is unclear. According to leading project management experts it is an immature discipline and the consequence of this is a significant gap between research and practice. The discipline lacks a unified theory and established body of research. Bodies of knowledge (BoKs) reflect process and technique yet frequently neglect the political, social and ethical dimensions of project management. This presentation highlights the necessary changes over the next 10 years that will provide the business world with a competent, professional and rigorous project management discipline.
Mark Kozak-Holland brings years of experience as a consultant who helps Fortune-500 companies formulate projects that leverage emerging technologies. He is a PMP, certified business consultant, the author of several books, and a noted speaker. Whilst recovering a failed Financial Services project he first used the Titanic analogy to explain to project executives why the project had failed. The project recovery was going to take 2 years and $8m cost versus the original $2m cost and 1 year duration. As a historian, Mark seeks out the wisdom of the past to help others avoid repeating mistakes and to capture time-proven techniques.
