Based on his recent featured HBR article, the keynote will talk about the Project Economy. In fact, in the next five years, the world will see more projects than ever. The reconstruction of the economy, healthcare, social care, and society at large, after the devastating global pandemic crisis, will be unprecedented in human history. According to McKinsey Governments’ have announced $10 trillion in reconstruction funds just in the first two months of the crisis, which is three times more than the response to the 2008–09 financial crisis. These are millions of projects, which will need millions of project managers.
Yet, today, about 70% of projects fail to deliver their objectives. We urgently need to step up and significantly increase the project success rate. Considering that every year approximately 48 trillion US dollars are invested in projects, we fail to deliver trillions of benefits, value, and impact in organizations and society at large. It is colossal, unbearable, and embarrassing. What if we commit to doing much better? if we increase our success ratio from 30% to 60%? Just imaging the amount of value that we would be adding to the world, approximately the GDP of China in extra benefit. Imagine if we do that not only in 2021 but year after year.
To achieve this incredible goal, project management and projects managers will need to reinvent themselves, ... you will find out all the details during my keynote....
