PM Next Generation: How Minecraft and Gamification are Shaping PM
Closing Keynote Abstract:
In order to maintain relevance and importance, project management must adapt to address the needs of the future world. What will that future look like? One approach is to identify and understand the emerging trends. Current constructs of work and privacy, how we measure productivity and success, and how we develop a career are in flux. This session will share the latest research from various thought leaders in the areas of globalization and hyper-connectedness, while looking at the forces shaping our children today - Minecraft, gaming, Facebook, speed of change, and values - that will affect the tools and perspectives of future project managers.
Lastly, we will provide speculative glimpses into what projects will look like in the future and how PMs will work. What new types of projects will emerge? Will project management remain a distinct discipline? What will project teams look like? These "visions" will provoke participants into thinking about what they need to establish or develop today to ensure project management evolves with the times and the generations.
