Now, let’s focus on the trends which have already been or will be popular in Project Management: 

Managing remote project teams

The events of the last two years have forced many organisations to introduce remote work. Despite reducing the risk, working from home has become a permanent feature of many companies. Therefore, Project Management is no longer limited to working in the office, and can be managed remotely just as effectively.

For some tasks it will be easy, for others it will require more difficulties for the team to overcome, even in terms of avoiding face-to-face contact. However, working remotely has many advantages, including when it comes to Project Management. The ability to use many tools to facilitate project management allows for efficient and effective cooperation even at a distance. Project Manager can remotely manage, control and actively participate in the work of the team and have project running smoothly.

Introducing Agile

In 2022, it will be important that teams work in an Agile environment. In order for it to go according to the plan, they will have to have well-developed knowledge and experience necessary to implement an appropriate strategy, corresponding to the organization's goals and their business needs. Nowadays, more and more companies use Agile to improve processes related to Project Management. We anticipate that this demand will increase even more in the next few years.

Focusing on soft skills

Of course, technical knowledge is of great importance in Project Management, but soft skills are equally important. The most notable features are empathy, creativity and good communication skills. There have been many changes in the area of Project Management in recent years. These are no longer rigid processes looking only at the end results. What matters now is cooperation and the atmosphere inside the team as they are the people behind the project. The Project Manager's job is to ensure that people in the team feel comfortable and support each other.

AI and Automation

Artificial Intelligence and automation has become a permanent feature of many industries and is now something completely regular in many fields. This trend is also active in Project Management. Nowadays, companies work with more and more projects, which are also more and more complex, therefore Project Managers need advanced tools to face these growing challenges. Thanks to these tools, they can work more efficiently and organise their work. So, along with the growing demand for Project Management tools, the demand for AI and automation will also grow over time.

Sustainability and Social Responsibility

Sustainable development and social responsibility are issues that are becoming increasingly important in many fields. However, they are also slowly becoming very important in Project Management. This means that now, when evaluating the project, we take into account not only the financial effects, such as staying within the budget, but also whether the project brought any benefits to society.For example, customers will now be more likely to consider whether their potential companies are aware of their social responsibility. To define that they will analyze their contribution according to "Environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG)" criteria.

As you can see, Project Management is an area that is constantly changing, and the changes occurring are smaller or larger, depending on their scale. However, the world is moving forward and so are the processes and tools in Project Management. The development of technology and greater awareness of the society are two factors that have the greatest impact on the scale of changes taking place in this area.
