  • Andrew Davies

Abstract

‘Back to the future’ considers whether the new and emerging forms of project organization are equipped to deal with the major challenges individuals, organizations, and societies are facing in the 21st century, such as rapid urbanization, climate change, an ageing population, poverty, terrorism, and the migration and refugee crisis. A flexible and adaptive model of project management supported by digital technologies is required for these dynamic and unpredictable projects that are difficult to define with no clear solutions. How will projects of the future be able to respond to these societal challenges and the relentless pressure to innovate and compete in global markets? What can we learn from the past?
