Managing Complex Projects - when technology changes faster than project implementation

About the presentation
This month's AIPM event is a fireside chat about delivering projects that have a relatively long lifecycle, where technological changes may/will impact their delivery. This topic was extracted from feedback collected from a member survey in 2015.

Projects that depend upon technology are rapidly finding that their success is becoming more dependent on strategies for managing potential changes, as well as how realised changes to those technologies are handled. Many projects these days are dependent and therefore impacted by technology, whether it is IT software development, or infrastructure construction, or even organisational processes and systems. Project managers are finding that these changes can no longer be successfully managed by a system of scope change/variation requests; and practical strategies have to be developed during project planning, and maintained through the project's life.

This event will provide a guided forum for attendees to hear about and share their experiences associated with the source of these technological changes, hurdles to avoid or manage, and effective techniques for guiding a project and its project team through.
