The field of project management has always been dynamic in this ever-changing world. The nature of projects will further undergo a change in the post COVID era. Many leaders have pointed out that Covid-19 is a warning message from nature. Accordingly, all projects would have to be aligned with the principles of sustainable development. In other words, re-purposing projects will gain momentum. What may have worked earlier may not work now. Technologies that encourage cloud-collaborations would emerge. Employees and customers will be widely dispersed in their respective locations. In order to meet varied demands on a 24X7 basis, organizations would be required to quickly adopt and scale cloud-based applications. This calls for quickly adapting to change and innovation on-the-go.
