We’re excited to announce the release of our Top 10 Adaptive Leadership Trends for 2018. This year’s trends reflect project management’s continued evolution into a blended discipline, incorporating new adaptive approaches and skill sets.
While new technology has enabled greater interconnectedness and efficiency, it has also changed the way and speed of doing business. We’re beginning to see traditional project roles and organizational hierarchies shifting to adapt to this new environment. As a result, people in diverse roles, across all levels of organizations, are becoming empowered to participate in strategic conversations and the decision-making process.
The Top 10 Adaptive Leadership Trends for 2018 explore a renewed focus on knowledge sharing, collaboration, experimentation, and a new mindset to approach problem solving.
Among the themes that emerged from this year’s report are that business complexity influences the skills required of project leaders, and that gaining an understanding of how the external environment affects our work is critical to getting ahead. These elements permeate all aspects of project-based work and require leaders who are adaptive and equipped with a blend of technical and creative problem- solving skills.
