The Project Economy Has Arrived, HBR


    • Great projects don’t just make work better—they make the world better.
    • In 2017, the Project Management Institute estimated that the value of project-oriented economic activity worldwide would grow from $12 trillion in 2017 to $20 trillion in 2027, in the process putting some 88 million people to work in project management–oriented roles—and those estimates were made before nations started spending trillions on pandemic-recovery projects.
    • By executing our projects better, we’ll be able to provide trillions of dollars’ worth of additional benefits to the world.
    • If managers and organizations want to build the competencies required to transform themselves and thrive in the new project economy, they’ll need to get comfortable devising strategies that are driven not by efficiency but by change.

    Your Projects Are Your Future, HBR


    • At HBR we put thousands of hours of work into each issue of the magazine (and our website and books). But a lot of our energy is devoted not to these current products but to long-term projects that will help us develop innovations that will drive our business into the future. The same is true at your company, I hope.
    • Pulling off ambitious initiatives with extended timelines can be challenging—a reality that this issue’s Spotlight on better project management addresses. 
    • There are times when juggling projects can be a drag—with more meetings, more ambiguity, and more risk of failure. But organizations that underinvest in projects face a limited future, so finding ways to help your people execute them better is an imperative.

    Lessons learned, HBR, 

    The Project Economy Has Arrived  



    • From Operations to Projects. It’s often said that to succeed in times of change, companies need to be organizationally ambidextrous—or as the academics put it, they must balance the exploitation of their current capabilities (operations) with the exploration of new competencies (projects). In other words, they need to focus simultaneously on running the organization and changing it.
    • Changing the organization (projects). This dimension is key to the future of the company. It includes all the organization’s strategic and tactical initiatives and programs. Changing the business is about innovation, transformation, agility, and long-term value creation. The focus is medium- to long-term, the objectives are more strategic, the structure is flat and project based, and the outcomes are less quantifiable than operational results. Culturally, the model is entrepreneurship and collaboration.
    • The future belongs to organizations that can achieve the right balance of run and change, but most leaders are far better at the former, and so spend more of their time on it. That’s a legacy of the 20th century, when, starting in about 1920 and guided by the likes of Henry Ford and Frederick Taylor, most companies made productivity their prime directive. They achieved it with a relentless focus on increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and raising volumes and outputs.
