I just accepted the invitation of one of the world’s largest project management professional associations to serve as a Keynote Speaker in their 20th Annual Symposium and 35th anniversary of the organization in Ottawa, Canada. The date is October 20-21 2020 at Ottawa Conference and Event Center. I will be speaking on designing and managing projects in the age of agility where customer needs are constantly evolving, with technology drastically changing the ordinances of market systems. My working topic is Evolve: Beyond Project Output to Value Realization on Project Management. I will share more in the coming weeks as I prepare to co-share with global project management experts, coming from NASA, Harvard, Amazon, Microsoft, Tesla, Goldman Sachs, etc. It is no more innovation; you need symphonic innovation to get leverageable value in project management.
Symphonic Innovation is innovation that is not domain-specific, but is anchored on a unified and harmonious approach in the deployment of technology components to accelerate productivity gains and cushion competitiveness. With Symphonic Innovation, you do not deploy and launch for one technology area like blockchain only to be tripped by AI or big data; you launch with a mindset that these technologies are like extended musical compositions which must be carefully organized to make the orchestra an unforgettable experience.
