Identifying future solutions to address skills shortages

We know skills shortages are a real concern for the profession, so now is the time to consider solutions.

Where should investment be made? How can the development of a Chief Project Officer (CPO) role help? Is growing professionalism and maturity the answer?

This session will aim to break down the challenges for different 'skills packages' (such as traditional PM skills, interpersonal skills and project controls skills), discuss the role of diverse capabilities and identify a menu of potential next steps for employers.
