Abstract: Disruption has happened and will continue to shape what we do for years to come. The biggest value of this to project managers is that their capabilities suddenly have been highlighted as the most impactful enabler for this disruption-full world.

In this presentation, Dr. Zeitoun will highlight the patterns that shape the positive impact of this disruption on the way of working in the future. Agility is the name of the game for this project economy and the leaders who will sustain their success will be the ones who have an infinite thirst for learning new skills to outpace the rate of this disruption.

Dr. Zeitoun will bring examples from his vast global program and project experiences across industries, coupled with decades of volunteering for PMI’s senior roles, to showcase how agility, collaboration, and clear purpose, will shape the success of the Focused Leader in operating with excellence in this new economy. He will also bring together insights directly gleaned from senior organizational leaders’ discussions and interviews to support his hypotheses about operating in this economy.

Three attributes, digital appetite, smart decision-making, and new sponsorship models will be demonstrated as the necessary cultural and organizational requirements for the Focused Leader to power this project-centered world. Zeitoun will highlight how critical thinking will be one of the future’s most in-demand qualities and how this will facilitate the interaction between these 3 attributes, and how a balanced roadmap of the right ingredients amongst them, will allow for a fun and energized new and continually dynamic ways of working to lead in this Project Economy.
