ESI International released their Top 10 list of forecasted project management trends for 2009.
I completely agree that these are things that need to happen, and should happen. Time will tell if they actually DO happen, but the winds do seem to be blowing that way. I think it's a great list.
Some highlights are (I've paraphrased here):
- Companies are finally starting to realize the importance middle managers play in the "whole system" of project management.
- Tighter budgets mean more virtual teams, which will require new rules of engagement.
- Companies will finally begin to understand the nuances of program management, and how it differs from project management.
- Informal communities will be used for increasing dialogue and sharing best practices.
