Thought Leader: The Project Revolution

Since the industrial revolution, workers have been reduced to mere numbers; assets, fixed costs. Organisations have been driven primarily by targets and control systems. The big innovations in management have mostly focused on doing things faster and cheaper, often at the expense of employees.

Now, at a time of unparalleled and accelerating change, projects are moving centre stage. Projects are essential to creating value, and at the heart of great projects are people. Projects mobilise, engage and maximise people to achieve change. This disruption will not only impact the way organisations are managed but every aspect of our lives. We will all become project leaders. The Project Revolution provides a simple but powerful framework as well as insights into the skills required for everyone to succeed in the new project-driven world.

Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez, Global Transformation Expert
