Leaders need technical, business, and soft skills to manage projects and their remote teams effectively in the new normal. Project Management South Asia Conference 2021 will focus on the new capabilities that leaders must develop to succeed in this world.
As unpredictability continues, so does the definition of the ‘new normal.’
With limited ability to foresee tomorrow’s changing landscape and create lasting solutions, project leaders need to adopt an agile, adaptable, and flexible approach as against the conventional, tried-and-tested project management practices. They are today expected to wear multiple hats to navigate their projects effectively, even as complexity grows. Project managers must hence master next-level skills in technology, hybrid project management, leadership, business analysis, communication, and people management. People skills such as empathy, negotiation, and active listening will foster great working relationships in today’s remote working environment.
In this edition of Manage South Asia, leaders from the project management profession tell us about the critical issues they are facing in the new normal, and the path they are adopting.
