The Ideas that Shaped Project Management in 2013

It was a crazy year for the IT world. From to 3-D printing and other tech advances to debates over the Machiavellian CEO, Katharine Bell looks back on some of the top trends of 2013 and how they will impact our future.

First, we learned that the right kind of project management really does matter. Of course, it would be easy to pinpoint this whole lesson on, but what really happened was just driving home a lesson that we’ve already learned. Project management is tricky, and having a project go off without a single hitch is extremely rare.

Also, watch tech advances that will shape the economic future. Bell points specifically to 3-D printing and its potential to turn Africa’s already valuable natural resources into world-changing advances.

Finally, be nice to your coworkers. This shouldn’t come as a new rule as of 2013, but with lots of debate over the advancement of Machiavellian leaders, many have decided it is better to be loved than feared. Whether your year-long focus was on email cutbacks or equality in the workplace, Bell’s list highlights the top trends to interest project managers of all kinds.
