PROJECT MANAGEMENT TRENDS FOR
2019
by PM Experts
2
PROJECT MANAGEMENT TRENDS as suggested by PM
Experts
3
1
Accelerated Shift from Waterfall to Agile Project
Management
There will be an accelerated shift from Waterfall
to Agile Project Management in larger
organizations as they realize the only way to
deliver on benefits in the increasingly dynamic
and complex environment is to learn and adapt
quickly.
Waterfall
Agile

2
Project Managers will be more of All-rounders
Project managers will be more of all-rounders,
flexible, strategic, and focus more on the
dependencies within the project. There will be
more pressure than ever before on project
managers from external stakeholders, and they
have to be more creative to think out of the box
to meet strategic objectives.
5
3
Highly Projectized Enterprises
Enterprises will be highly projectized with the
integration of project thinking to all work
processes. With increased remote teams, soft
skills will be even more important. Social
responsibility and accountability will gain more
focus across enterprises globally.
6
4
Focus on Change Management
As the commercial sector moves towards agile,
flexible working spaces, the ability for a
Project Manager to understand and effectively
communicate the principles of change management
will become almost compulsory. The competitive
world of commercial business now dictates that
companies provide an experience and not just a
place to sit and work. The Project Managers role
through delivery of these solutions is to assist
in providing these experiences and change
management is the key skillset required to do so.

7
5
Implementation of Agile Project Management
With the enterprise-wide implementation of Agile
Project Management, even hybrid project
management will spread further. And in many
organizations, project management roles will be
replaced by Scrum Masters.
8
6
Effective Communication
Effective communication and hand over on a daily
basis between cross geographic Agile teams will
play a crucial role.
9
7
Newer Technologies
Newer technologies like Artificial intelligence,
Robotic Process Automation, Machine Learning,
Virtual Reality (VR), Cloud, Block chain, and
Nanotechnology will be more popular in
enterprises. The future of Project Managers will
depend on having these key experiences as they
will be in more demand to handle complex projects
down the line.
10
8
Internet Of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things (IoT) will bring critical and
complex data to work with for Project Managers
and Team Leaders. Emotional intelligence will be
part of their day-to-day activity throughout the
project life cycle.
11
9
Technology Push
Technology Push As we move toward a paper-less
work environment there is an increasing push to
move projects to cloud based systems. There are
many positives in doing this real-time
connectivity to the project team, live
instruction and data capture and so on. Thus, the
modern age project manager shall be required to
understand a number of cloud-based application
platforms and be fluent in mainstream providers
such as Aconex, Bluebeam, and Procore to name a
few.
12
10
Appreciation
Motivation will no longer be having a steady
source of income but will come from appreciation,
sense of belongingness, and being valued.
Moreover, millennials will constitute a larger
slice of the project team in enterprises
worldwide.
13
11
More is More
More is More The old adage of less is more is
certainly out the window moving forward.
Increasing competitiveness will dictate the
requirement for a Project Manager to provide
something different, an edge, an added extra.
It will simply not be enough for a Project
Manager to say they are an expert in a field as
clients access to a broader Project Manager
market, allowing them a larger field of
experts. Project Managers in 2019 will need to
work on growing their skillsets beyond their area
of expertise and look to how they can provide a
tailored experience for every client.
14
12
Fighting for Competent Resources
There will be fierce fighting for competent
resources and certified practitioners globally
and this, in turn, will shape the portfolios
managed by enterprises.
15
13
Mega Projects
A large number of mega projects will be
sanctioned especially in the oil and gas sector.
Scaling up would be more in focus in this sector,
and the demand for project practitioners will go
up drastically.
16
14
Focus from Large to Medium Organizations
Project Management will gain more focus from
large to medium organizations. As per the latest
PMI Pulse of the Profession 2018 report,
enterprises now only waste 9.9 of every dollar
invested, down from 13.5 in 2013.
17
15
Greater Demand
Greater demand for PMI certified Project
Management Professionals (PMP), Program
Management Professionals (PgMP), and Portfolio
Management Professionals (PfMP) from enterprises
globally.
18
16
More Investment towards Training and Certification
Both SMBs and large MNCs will invest even more in
building up their staff with relevant training
and certification courses to handle dynamic and
challenging projects
19
17
Innovative Solutions Closer Engagement
Scope management will no longer mean protecting
the original scope drafted in the business plan
but coming up with innovative solutions through
closer engagement of the design and business
teams, to find the path of least resistance to
change.
20
18
Lens of Delivering Benefits
Project success will be judged through the lens
of delivering benefits, rather than just the
traditional tenets of staying within budget and
delivering on time.
21
19
Digital Transformation
Digital transformation will be the need of the
hour for both SMBs and large organizations that
will look for a fully integrated solution.
22
