Teams of Tomorrow: The Human Side of Project Management
17. mája 2020 @ 18:00 - 19. mája 2020 @ 17:00
Let’s be a visionary for a while and imagine what we will say about work in the future.
Work is not about to get things done. Today, ‘work’ is increasingly becoming a concept of performed tasks under different legal, functional, and geographic frameworks. Jobs are being broken down into projects that may either be outsourced to independent professionals and experts or reconfigured into projects that assemble physical or virtual teams across borders and time-zones.
“project-focused’ approach to work is on the rise”
How does this work in practice? Once a specific project, product, or assignment is identified,
a team of different people from different professions with distinct but complementary skills, comes together and collaborates to get the job done. Once the team finishes the project, it is disassembled and re-configured with other members on another project.
By working on projects in an international environment, we see that work executed by teams composed of individuals has a global impact and glues societies together nowadays.
“In the new world of work, the individual should be in the center of attention.”
While some have the tools and mind-set to adapt to coming projectification, not all are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be able to respond to changes that work on projects brings.
Given the changes in the workplace, people will have to increasingly learn new skills to remain employable throughout their working life. Skills continue to be the best guarantor of social mobility and opportunity. But skills are not static and need to be updated and fine-tuned throughout working lives.
At the same time, work-life balance preferences are changing. Millennials are keen to have more diversity and also more flexibility in their work patterns and commitments. They can work on several projects in parallel, but then when the work is done they also require a decent level for rest and relax.
There’s never been a worse time to be a worker with only ‘ordinary’ skills and abilities to offer, because computers, robots, and other digital technologies are acquiring these skills and abilities at an extraordinary rate.
What regards the work dynamic, the pace of change has accelerated significantly, mainly due to digital technologies.
As automation and artificial intelligence are leaping into new areas, the human-robot partnership will further transform the nature of work. Research has shown that occupations requiring strong social, interpersonal skills, and non-routine analytical skills have grown dynamically since 1980 with consistent wage growth. Even in the tech industry, it is jobs that require both technical and interpersonal skills that are on the rise.
“Teams of tomorrow have increasingly varied types of workers.”
In the end, there is no need to be a visionary to see those changes in the work environment. They are already here.
The right question we should ask ourselves now is: are we ready to be a competent members of Teams of tomorrow? Do people in our companies have the right competencies for tomorrow? How to develop and find Project managers of tomorrow?
