Exceptional Project Management: Watch our expert debate

Many questions were discussed including:

  • What does Project Management Excellence look like ?
  • What needs to change in the way we do business ?
  • Do we need a more project centric matrix organization?
  • What tools and processes do we need to support the future world ?
  • Why do we need to integrate the project plan with the whole project process ?
  • Is the Project Plan just a pretty picture ?
  • Why are we so dependent on using Excel ?
  • How Integrated is your Project Execution process ?
  • How should we integrate BIM into our project and asset lifecycle execution process?

Perhaps it is time for the industry to change?
