How to Navigate the New Normal with Greater Effectiveness
The last 18 months have been the most disruptive times in the recent past, with all the elements of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) impacting us in every aspect of our lives. Having lived through these tough times, it is important for us to recollect what we experienced and move ahead.
March 2020 will go down in history as one the most defining times of our lives. Our normal lives were upended as countries across the globe waged a war against COVID-19. During these months, we experienced many personal tragedies and setbacks, and made changes to our day-to- day lives.
So it was not a surprise that in March 2021, when PMI South Asia ran a poll on the topic for a global conference, over 60 percent of the total 800 entries voted for a discussion on the new normal.
Hence, we decided to focus on the theme, Project Management:
Embracing the New Normal, for our upcoming Project Management South Asia Conference 2021, to be held on 10-11 December. The idea behind this initiative is to help our community understand how to navigate the new normal with greater effectiveness. Our focus is to equip you with the best experiential learning opportunities, help you to get some answers, and provide you with coping strategies for negative situations in the future.
It has been our constant endeavour to bring industry best practices and knowledge to the project management community. We have invited global speakers to use the conference as a platform to share their valuable insights and experiences in handling disruptions.
Gone are the days where everyone was eager to progress their career by learning new skills. In today’s time, when everything is thrown out of the gear, many are keen to go back to the basics, and learn, relearn, and unlearn.
