Top 10 project management trends of 2013 - #3

Project management is not just for project managers anymore. For decades “project manager” was a role, not a title. People claimed to have come to the position by accident. That’s all changed in the past 20 years. Organisations developed project manager career paths and hundreds of thousands became certified. While the professionalism of project management will continue, organisations will require individuals outside of those who carry the PM title to perform the role of project manager. Business units such as HR, sales, marketing, and legal services need their employees trained in project management as well. It might not be a classic view of those roles, but each corporate discipline manages projects, even if they do not view their work through that lens. The point is, there are not enough project managers to go around and these groups have projects that need to get done.
