Business Reporter: Redefining Professionalism in a Rapidly Transforming World

LONDON, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world transforms at unprecedented speed, business leaders are looking for the skills necessary to deliver change effectively, says Association for Project Management (APM). 

Organisations face many challenges, and ensuring their workforces evolve their mindsets is one of them. To implement change effectively, many organisations are looking to project professionals.

Debbie Dore, chief executive of Association for Project Management (APM), says that successful growth of project activity can only be achieved by continuously developing professionalism in all areas.

So, what does it mean to be a project professional today? Employees should:

  • Learn continuously – advance the practice of project management, through new information and innovative knowledge
  • Support the next generation – grow the talent pipeline by engaging with new starters, students and apprentices
  • Develop a broader range of skills – commit to ongoing learning and development, and embrace new concepts such as mindfulness, for example
  • Join communities – connecting and collaborating with others is essential to constructive professionalism
  • Set new standards – seek out the highest benchmarks, such as becoming a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP)

As Dore explains, "Project managers are at the forefront of delivering in the face of change – or delivering change itself – to address new global challenges that demand increased levels of professionalism."

By following these strategies in trying times, the project profession can help companies step up to the mark and deliver.
