The Future of Project Management: Adapting to Modern Needs
Modern project management is different from what it was ten years ago. New methods and tools have been developed, the number of projects and members in project teams has increased, professionalism in project management has generally increased, and projects have become highly complex. Parallel to this, artificial intelligence, automation, information and communication technology, human resources management, and many other areas are being developed, which will continue to impact project management in the future significantly. At the same time, new generations of young people are entering the labour market with different needs and expectations for project work.
The authors of the book provide decision-makers, project workers, and students with an insight into the modern challenges of project management due to digitization, artificial intelligence and project economy. The book is based on knowledge of classic management principles but does not follow them blindly, arguing that modern project management is based on people, their values, and the intelligent use of methods, techniques, and emerging technologies.
