Lockdown diaries of a project manager: Leading the way with PMTQ - Project Management Technology Quotient

Lockdown diaries of a project manager: Leading the way with PMTQ - Project Management Technology Quotient


We all spoke, discussed and deliberated about VUCA for many years now and how agility can help in ruling the change. But, nobody, even the most expert of the experts, could predict the situation the business is in today.

COVID-19 has changed business, our way of working and our lives for ever.

For anyone charged with making strategy reality in a world of constant change Project Management Technology Quotient PMTQ will be the must-have, make-or-break skill set. The components of PMTQ are

Always On curiosity – Ability to embrace, new project delivery approaches, new ideas, new perspectives, new technologies. It is not jumping on to the band wagon, but about keeping an open mind and integrate what suits our project rather than chasing after every new digital trend.

All-inclusive leadership – Embracing diversity, gender, age, level in the organization chart, location, level of skill sets.

Future proof talent pool – Re-skill, upskill, replace, augment teams with the bots, and skills that are needed for the future

All these sums upto one that I took privilege to add something

Agility all the way – Ability to predict, adapt and respond to change.

In this session I delve into all of these principles with anecdotes from my

lockdown diaries – diary of recorded where I have leveraged these PMTQ principles to lead my team to success
