Synopsis:
Project management today is different in many ways from what it was ten years ago. New methods and tools have been developed, the number of projects and project stakeholders, as well as the number of members in project teams, has increased, the professionalism in project management has generally increased and last but not least, projects have become extremely complex.
In parallel, artificial intelligence, automation, information and communication technology, human resource management and many other fields continue to evolve, while at the same time awareness of the importance of sustainability and the environment is growing, all of which will continue to have a major impact on project management. At the same time, new generations of young people are entering the labour market, whose needs and expectations of work, and therefore their role in projects, are completely different.
So the environment of projects, the available technologies, the people and the problems we solve with projects are changing with great dynamics. The challenges in the field of project management and related areas are therefore numerous and solving them requires a high degree of coordinated action between researchers and practitioners.
