Project Management Post Pandemic

The last 4 weeks has been a great time for reflection. An increase in editorial content from news outlets and lots and lots of traffic on LinkedIn and other social media platforms have yielded some fantastic ideas and aspirational thinking.

For the record, we do not think that 5G is the cause of Covid-19! What we do think though, is that businesses will need to come out the other side of this with an even greater ability to execute revised business strategies. As such, effective project delivery will be even more important. This is where a project management mindset will be of real value to help bring about change in what we do and how we do it.

Increasingly, one of the paths to recovery being touted is Government spending on large public works schemes. Given that this crisis has been compared to the Great Depression in its magnitude, a comparison to Roosevelt’s New Deal of the 1930’s, seems appropriate. In New Zealand, initiatives such as a National 5G rollout, renewable energy, roading projects, civil infrastructure programmes and yes, Christchurch’s stadium, have all been mentioned over the past few weeks as ways to get the economy moving again. Few will disagree that big and often ambitious programmes, will be central to any recovery, and again, the ability to execute and deliver these initiatives will be absolutely critical.
