The COVID-19 outbreak has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, causing a huge impact on peoples’ lives, their families and communities. As the international response continues to develop, we know that organisations are facing several potentially significant challenges to which they need to respond rapidly. No doubt, all of us are working closely with organisations locally and globally to help them to prepare and respond to the challenging weeks and months ahead. As project management professionals we are used to dealing with unexpected events and responding to risks. We are familiar with maintaining optimised levels of productivity when people are being pulled in many directions.

  • What this means for your projects, your project teams and how you can show leadership, as we are all tested in the months ahead
  • How organisations are responding to COVID-19 in relation to transformation and the projects that drive them
