Join Patrick Woodman (Editor Dialogue Magazine) and Ian Clarkson (PPM Consultant, QA) in conversation as they talk about the adaptive project professional and what this means for the future of project management.

Ian will be asking Patrick the following questions:

  • Can you provide a summary of where we are with the Projecting the Future (PtF) initiative?
  • PtF talks about an adaptive project professional - what does this term mean?
  • How do organisations and individuals need to change to create the adaptive project professional?
  • What’s your response to the challenge that the adaptive project professional is only applicable to larger organisations?
  • Is the profession at risk of losing its identity with the adaptive project professional?
  • Do you think businesses want, and are ready, for the adaptive project professional?
