The Future of Project Management


Our economy is increasingly driven by project-based work characterised by high degrees of collaboration. Innovation and creativity are the key components of value creation, while employee expectations and working cultures are changing all the time. We are seeing new forms of working that are enabled by digital technologies, on projects that are both complex and global. Understanding and managing these changes is vital, if we want to continue to provide solutions that truly meet the needs of our stakeholders and our clients.

Future of Project Management is a partnership and collaboration between Arup, The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management at UCL, and the Association for Project Management, with crowd-sourced inputs from the global project management community. It is a compilation of best practice, emerging trends, and forward thinking, an interactive site for debate about change in the project management profession, and a roadmap for future academic and professional research.

FoPM is presented in three sections that set the context for the future through emerging mega-trends, then imagine that future through the eyes of our clients delivering projects, and finally outline plans and priorities for future action and research.

FoPM is a living initiative – a virtuous cycle prompting future research that in turn will provide fresh insight to develop and improve FoPM.
