In the lead up to 32nd IPMA World Congress in St.Petersburg that is planned for the 21-23 September, 2021 Russian Project Management Association SOVNET is warmly inviting you to join free online forum “Project Management Practices in the Digital Era”. An online forum is planned for the 21st-24th of September, 2020. The event is dedicated to Project Managers, HR-specialists, CDTO and CIO. The first day of the event is fully in English.

Description of 1st day: Urgent and unexpected projects
In the last few months, our world has changed dramatically as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, forcing us to rethink some of our ideas about project work. The emergency nature of the reaction to the global outbreak means decisions must be made immediately, plans must be enacted in a matter of hours – or minutes – and our conservative aversion to risk-taking must be reversed to facilitate rapid mega transformations in organisations, nations and society at large. Yet, the need to respond urgently, and engage with rescue and recovery activities means there has been very little time to think about the changing nature of projects.
The purpose of this interactive workshop is to reflect on the implications of the new ways of working, share stories of successful emergency projects, and establish new guidelines, ideas and good practices for deploying urgent and unexpected projects. The session heralds the beginning of a new conversation about doing critical projects that matter under demanding and unforgiving circumstances. This IPMA expert workshop provides an opportunity for practitioners to hear what works, contribute, share, reflect and improve. Join us and our global community of practitioners to explore what’s different now and determine how we can become better at dealing with urgent and unexpected projects, programmes and initiatives.
