  • 11:30 am: Networking begins
  • 12:00 – 1:00 pm: Program

Throughout the history of the practice of project management, we have been subject to a plethora of techniques and practices that, while fashionable at the time, became obsolete very quickly. For several years many saw Agile as one of those short-term quick-fix ideas that would soon be remembered as nothing more than a buzzword.

By now most of us realize that that hasn’t happened! Agile has become one of the several trends that are changing the way we accomplish our goals. In this brief presentation, we will look at some of the current trends that are shaping our industry, and then you can decide…fashion or fundamental?

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify current trends within the project management industry
  2. Learn how those trends may drive project management practice
  3. Understand ways to adapt a project environment to align with best practice
