Harnessing the Power of Project Management and Digital Project Management Skills:

Of all the things I’ve done, the most vital is coordinating the talents of those who work for us and pointing them towards a certain goal.” — Walt Disney

Harnessing the Power of Project Management and Digital Project Management Skills:

In today's highly competitive and rapidly evolving career landscape, the value of versatile, transferable skills cannot be overstated. Among these, project management and digital project management skills hold a unique prominence. In my experience, I've come to appreciate the significance of these skills in almost every industry, job function, and level of responsibility, particularly in the dynamic Australian and Queensland job markets.

Project Management: The Indispensable Skill

Project management is a skill set that involves planning, coordinating, and executing a project from inception to completion. Whether you're in engineering, finance, marketing, or IT, managing projects is a common part of the job.

In Australia, where the project management industry is projected to increase by 10% from 2021 to 2026, according to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee, this skill set is crucial for career progression. In Queensland, project management skills are in high demand, particularly in thriving sectors such as construction, healthcare, and information technology.

Digital Project Management: A Game Changer in the Digital Age

As the digital economy continues to expand, digital project management has emerged as an essential skill. It's about leveraging digital technologies to drive business growth and adapt to changes.

According to the 2022 Deloitte Digital Consumer Trends report, Australia is one of the most digitally mature markets in the world, with 91% of Australians now owning a smartphone, and 86% using the internet daily. In this digital-first environment, digital project management skills are a competitive advantage.

Furthermore, Queensland's Digital Economy Strategy 2023 aims to enhance digital skills, increase innovation, and boost Queensland's digital economy. This makes the state a promising hub for digital project management professionals.
