Organizations, dissatisfied with their project management performance, will radically change their approaches to get back on track.

Since August 1990, we have gone from 431 to more than 590,000 project management professionals (PMP)® and from one to more than 350 colleges and universities offering masters degrees in PM. And, in that same period, organizations have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in PM tools, credentials and training. Yet PMI, in its Pulse of the Profession reports, the United States Government Accountability Office in its various audits, and other reports published by Gartner, Forrester and the like, continue to document poor project results. This “wake-up” call is being heard in every industry, and organizations, tired of disappointing results, are going to start to take drastic action to turn things around. That action can range from better leadership programs, to lean methodologies, to making sure each project has a sponsor with smarts and a backbone. Stand by, significant change is coming.
