I learned a lot from working on my article for the Project Management Institute’s PM Network magazine.
And one of the things to which I’ve especially been giving a lot of thought is this comment from the piece:
“More and more of the world’s GDP is being produced in the form of projects … The balance between business-as-usual and projects is inexorably shifting toward projects, with the result that demand for project managers is exceeding supply by a very large margin, and it is a trend that I think is going to be continuing. … I think project management may be the fastest growing profession that the world has ever seen.”

This strikes me as an important and very useful observation.
