Innovative Project Management and Strategic Application of Digital Transformation -  Focused Training/Workshop - ONLINE (ZOOM) - Sept 9 -10, 2020

Course overview:


Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements. The aim of every project is successful completion on time within established scope and budget. Despite the core role of traditional project management to prevent failure and accomplish projects successfully within the zone of the golden triangle has remained a huge challenge. As projects become more complex, requiring longer time and bigger budgets, it impacts the chances of successful completion which is the objective of every project. A business survey conducted by KPMG said that half of businesses surveyed experience at least one project failure in a given year.


Traditional Project management puts a process in place that prevents failure, that remains a comfort zone for business and ensures predictability as first step for proactive in project management. However, sometimes things go wrong beyond the established guidelines, either because the process was not followed, or was flawed or the unexpected happened. Sometimes, it becomes too difficult and challenging for the project manager and team to take prompt decisions, detect failure before it happens or communicate effectively to save situations and reach the expected goal. Many times, project managers have bemoaned that a project failed because of communication breakdown within the team, project manager-sponsors or company-project manager and EPC Company.


This is where innovative project management and strategic application of digital transformation comes in. Innovative project management and strategic application of digital transformation is extreme project management  (EPM) or agile project management that  inculcates 360 degree  leadership, integration of technology and digital tools in adding values to projects delivery through enhanced real time decision making, problem solving through  predictable analysis by the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate tasks, make process recommendations, detect the unknown and uncertainties, accurately predict project risks, create proactive knowledge based ecosystem among team, boost communication, collaboration, safe environment, unveil team insights, do functional human resources placement or team staffing,  and finally ensure that high quality projects boosted with value are delivered on time and within scope and budget.

This is not to say that traditional project management is a core enemy to project s. However, for a project to have the assurance of full success and creating a knowledge based and collaborative culture, project managers and teams should become innovative and integrate digital transformation tools in administrating projects for excellent results and outcomes.
