The top 10
trends for 2017
We’re pleased to share with you the newly released 2017 Top 10 Strategy Execution Trends.
This year, we’re seeing the project management discipline evolve beyond traditional borders and methodologies to keep pace with organisational changes. Collaboration and strategic thinking are happening from the bottom-up, and smart organisations are recognising the need for skill sets beyond traditional project management to be successful.

Our top 10 strategic execution trends for 2017 explore the transformation of traditional project management and highlight the emergence of the combined meta-practice of project management, business analysis, and strategy execution.

They include:

Adaptive Execution: The Birth of One Meta-Practice
Organisations are less concerned about adhering to single methodologies and are instead creating a blend that works for their culture and strategy.

Digitalisation – A New Project Management Tribe
The adoption of mobile, cloud and data technology is changing how companies run projects and get work done.
Change Managers are Essential for Innovation
Change managers are no longer being sidestepped as organisations recognise that change needs formal handling.
The BA and PM Partnership Strengthens
The relationship between business analysis and project management will mature into a strong partnership that combines best practices from each of the two disciplines to more effectively achieve organisational alignment.
Renewed Focus on Benefits Management
There will be a renewed focus on benefits management as it reinvents itself as a simpler process that is not just reserved for business analysts.
Project Management is for Everyone
As more organisations realize that their strategies are executed through a series of projects, more professionals are seeing the value of acquiring PM skills.
Value is the Buzzword
Project practitioners will have renewed focus on identifying and communicating the value they bring to their organisation.
Accountability Through Coaching
Formal coaching relationships are emerging within project management, as junior project managers gain direction and support from more tenured project professionals.

Co-Location, Distributed Work and the Rise of Collaboration
Organisations will spend more time focusing on team collaboration through web and physical space use.

Agile is not just for IT
An active migration toward an Agile mindset means that project workers are learning to adjust while projects are in mid-flight, instead of planning the course ahead of time and sticking to the original route.
