Preparing for projects in a post-pandemic world


The recordings, slides and Mentimeter Q&A/Poll results from the series of eight webinars run between April and May 2020 in collaboration with the Association for Project Management.

  1. Many projects will be in need of some accelerated support to get them moving again, following the enforced standstill
  2. Many people’s attitude (and maybe our appetite) for risk will have changed. We may have a better understanding of strategic risk; we may be more or less risk-averse
  3. Our sense of value and cost is likely to have changed, in response to the economic impact
  4. Work processes will have changed for good with the enforced adoption of virtual collaboration, many of us will have learned new skills and adopted new habits

The series of weekly webinars organised by the Major Projects Knowledge Hub and the Association for Project Management during April and May 2020 offered an eclectic look at the what the world may require of our projects and of us, once organizations start to function with some degree of normalcy. We brought you some of the most imaginative and engaging presenters, expertly facilitated by Merv Wyeth and Jonathan Norman and we  used the Mentimeter engagement tool to provide as great a level of audience participation and dialogue as is possible.
