Technological implications in Project Management Office (PMO)


Complex projects account for over 4% of the world’s GDP, yet only 8% of them complete on budget and on time. Currently, humans are responsible for all of the tasks within a project, even the repetitive and complex ones they’re unsuited to, instead of the high-value, creative, lateral thinking activities for which people are uniquely qualified. By expanding our workforce to include machines, better decisions will be made and better projects delivered. There are processes within the construction industry that are at risk of being disrupted. These disruptive technologies that continue to enter the market may be better and cheaper than their predecessors. Do they compete simultaneously on price, performance, and customization? Join us in this session to find out.

The world is accelerating its investment into linear infrastructure, much of it with a focus on sustainability and resilience. Time is the biggest lever available to ensure that trillions of dollars of projects planned or in delivery now starts delivering on benefits defined at the outset.
