Ecademy is an online, on-demand video library that provides practical content for project managers, project team members, project sponsors, program personnel, and anyone else participating in project- based work.
In the emerging ‘gig economy’, workers will need the knowledge and skills required to work effectively and efficiently on short-term, contract-based jobs, AKA “gigs”, AKA “projects”. Current projections estimate that 40% of the workforce will be engaged in this type of work by 20201, and with roughly 30% of the global economy being project-based2, the importance of developing project management capability has never been more clear, or more urgent.
Indeed, developing project management talent was identified as the number one priority of PMO managers in 20173 : more important than tools; more important than methodology; in fact, more important than all of their other priorities, combined.
Not only have we got to develop this talent in ourselves, our teams and our organisations, but we have to maintain and continually improve the way we deliver products, services and outcomes going forward.
Elemental Projects specialises in developing project management talent. We do this through face-to- face training, interactive workshops, executive coaching, gamified simulations, and now, with Ecademy, bite-sized videos designed to educate and upskill project and program personnel, just-in- time.
