The year 2020 has been one of the most challenging years in recent times. It has certainly been a year that has accelerated change for individuals and businesses and highlighted the Project Management Skills Gap.

If history has shown us that investment in projects has typically been used to stimulate economies and it is this investment that is driving the Project Management Skills Gap.

A quick overview of The PM Skills Gap

The presentation on The Project Management Skills Gap covers, the size of the opportunity in project management and the impact of a skills shortage.

Projects are growing globally. Based on market projections, over the next decade, organisations of all types and sizes will need people working in project management roles. On an annualised basis, employers are likely to need to fill over two-million newly created project-oriented roles each year through to 2027.

There is more scrutiny on spending and limited scope for greater spending. This means that organisations are taking more care of how, and where they outlay their capital, and they want professionals to deliver their projects.

A few things to think about at the early or concept phase of your project(s) is:

  1. What talent resources are required?
  2. Where is this talent
  3. How long will you need them?
  4. How long will it take to get these resources?
  5. What are you doing to manage your current talent resources,?
  6. Who are your resourcing partners?

What causes the skills shortage?

Just consider the number of projects being invested in, at a local and global level. It is this investment in Projects will continue to drive a significant upsurge in demand for project talent.

Projects change the world, and project management professionals are the change agents.

This is one profession where life is never dull and where demand for skilled practitioners will continue to be high.
