Projecting the Future

The Ageas Bowl, Botley Road, West End, Southampton, Hampshire, SO30 3XH

The Association for Project Management – the chartered body for the project profession launched in June 2019 a thought-leadership campaign: ‘Projecting the Future’.

Projecting the Future is a 'big conversation' with members and stakeholders about the future of the project profession. Having achieved Chartered status, what's next? How does the profession thrive in a world being changed by factors like robotics and AI, changing work pattern, climate change, and the 100-year human life?

The initiative is intended to promote a debate on the role of the project profession to ensure its future by exploring six major challenges that are reshaping the business environment and society and the future role of the project profession in delivering value to organisations. These ‘challenges’ will help focus the profession as to how it can help improve and deliver our future.  This event will provide an outline of campaign and act as a forum for discussion on ideas for the future of the profession.
