Key takeaways:

  • Drones, BIM, AI and analytics will expose us to a wealth of new data. As project professions we must be able to understand and use this data if we are to truly thrive in the future.

  • New ways of working; As project professionals we must spearhead our projects and feel empowered to look beyond the realms of time, cost and quality if our end users are to truly benefit.

  • The number of decisions we make is rapidly increasing and the quality of the decisions is decreasing. We use lessons learnt, the data to hand and our own skills to make the right choices for our projects.

  • Apprenticeships are evolving, as the apprenticeship levy develops businesses can invest in more and more in new talent but we must ensure that we engage with new teams in the right way and mentor them.

  • We tend to underestimate the impact of technology it in the short run and overestimate it in the long run. Scan the horizon for a clearer picture of what could affect our projects.
