Top 10 Trends in Project Management for 2013

  • Top 10 Trends in Project Management for 2013-

    Organizations will continue to call for strong project leaders but will focus on investments in hard skills.

    The training focus will remain on hard skills, even though many organizations will continue to assert that their project managers lack leadership skills such as communications, negotiations, organizational change management, and customer relationship management. The reason is simple: most companies would prefer to send their project managers to targeted training in the specifics of “project” and “program” leadership rather than generic leadership training that is so commonplace. Organizations will need to seek out alternatives to develop leadership skills because waiting for the ideal program will only result in perpetuating the existing unsatisfactory situation.

ESI International, a leading project management training company, recently announced the release of its top 10 trends in project management  for 2013. The 2013 trends reveal that expert leadership is lacking in all areas of project management, portfolio management and program management.

“This year’s trends bring a murky problem into specific light,” said J. LeRoy Ward, Executive Vice President, ESI International. “Leadership skills are lacking within the project community, and until project managers learn how to properly lead teams and their projects, project execution will continue to be a problem.”
