Peel: 05.17.18 PD Half Day: Why should Project Management matter to HR Professionals?
Unfortunately, people often have the misconception that project management is primarily applicable to information technology or engineering professionals. The reality is that organizations are becoming much more project-oriented and the practice of project management is becoming an important competency across a number of disciplines, including Human Resources (HR).
According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), employers across the globe will need about 88 million people capable of working in project management-oriented jobs by 2027 (Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap Report 2017-2027). Much of this demand will originate from developing countries such as China and India. Compounding this problem will be the shortage of qualified individuals capable of implementing new initiatives and driving change as the world's talent pool continues to reach retirement age.
