Event Topic: Working in the “Gig Economy”….what does this mean to you?

The “gig economy” has become the latest buzz phrase in recent years, but what does it mean?  Many of us who work on projects or lead projects as project managers have been living in the gig economy for years.  We work as contingent workers, or freelancers, and we move from project to project, or from company to company.  As stated in a recent E&Y survey, the gig economy is supported and accelerated by the rise of technology and customers who expect goods and services to arrive faster and more flexibly than ever before. To meet these demands, businesses need access to highly skilled professionals for short-term projects to drive innovation and rapid change. At the same time, workers are looking for opportunities that offer greater flexibility and variety.  Surveys differ, but some say that giggers make up more than 30% of the workforce today, and that is expected to continue to increase. 40% of organizations expect to increase their use of contingent workers in the next five years.

As a PMP, what does this all mean for you?  Either you will be managing a continuously different mix of resources on your project teams, or you will be competing more and more for that next gig yourself.

Join James as he provides some insights into this gig economy, and gives you some takeaways to prepare you for success.
