Project management is often seen as a support or administrative system when it can be a transformational tool. To properly respond to digital disruption, Project Management needs to be integrated with technology and be seen as an important business lever for growth and expansion. Around the world, digital business transformation and product-centric delivery models are altering the role of project and programme leaders. And now, an increasing number of businesses are adapting to this change and coming on board.
That’s why, as per a recent study by NASSCOM, 90% of the surveyed Global 2000 (G2000) companies are expected to increase IT budgets by more than 10% (weighted average) during the next 12 months. As organisations accept that business processes and technology can no longer work in silos, they are also moving away from traditional methods and towards processes more suitable for current market conditions and customer expectations. IT Project Management, which incorporates methodologies like Agile, can reshape business strategy, encourage fluidity, and maximise alignment, value, and performance. It is increasingly becoming the ignition to high performance, value creation, and new revenue streams.
To manage this shift, companies are hiring professionals with strong project management, problem-solving, analytical, logical & reasoning skills. They are on the lookout for leaders and facilitators who can embrace digital disruption, adopt lean techniques, and use tools that adapt to increasingly agile environments.
