Organizing the Project Economy 

PMPeople provides the technology for organizations to be effective in the Project Economy. In the Project Economy, projects are organized in structures enhancing specialization.

Project Economy, Project Manager (PM)

Project Manager is a Profession 

Project Management is a profession with a great future, but it must adapt to our times. Stakeholders expect the project to meet the business goals and deliver value. They don’t want us adding bureaucracy, wasting our time on paperwork, or even worse, wasting their time or team members time in meetings we should avoid. They need to know how the project is doing real time, just by getting evidence on 8 performance domains. Above all, they want the project to be predictable and to avoid crisis.

Controlling the Project Cost, in practice 

To get the project finished under budget, we need to measure cost performance on each review date. Earned Value Management (EVM), is the ANSI 748 standard method to measure the project cost performance objectively.

AI can help on technical tasks related to planning, controlling, knowledge management, etc. AI helps mentoring project managers throughout their professional careers. AI is effective classifying and clustering thousands of projects belonging to business units, programs, and portfolios.

What projects should be re-baselined? What teams should be restructured? What contracts should be canceled?

What is Artificial Intelligence? 

As in every area of the economy, digital transformation has disrupted project management. In order to manage projects professionally, we do not need paper documents anymore. We do not need to work from specific locations, neither. Project data, essential for business management in the Project Economy, is growing exponentially. More and more people collaborate on projects, sharing more and more technical and management data, and organizations are executing more and more projects. With so much project management data available, could algorithms manage projects automatically? What will be our role as project management professionals?
