Pulse of the Profession 2019

Data from the new 2019 Pulse of the Profession® survey show organizations wasted almost 12 percent of their investment in project spend last year due to poor performance—a number that’s barely budged over the past five years.

It’s time to add a new ingredient to that old formula, especially given the fundamental shift in how work is getting done. Few jobs of the future will revolve around a bulleted list of static responsibilities. More and more, people in all roles will be hired to manage a portfolio of projects, and increasingly, those projects will be tied to technology.

TQ, or technology quotient, is a person’s ability to adapt, manage and integrate technology based on the needs of the organization or the project at hand. Though the term has been used for a few years, it’s taking on a new urgency as people and companies search for digital sustainability—the capacity to adapt to the constant whirl of change brought on by advances in technology. Coupled with the changing nature of work from “job for life” to “portfolio of projects,” we see an even greater demand for TQ combined with project management, or PMTQ.

For anyone charged with making strategy reality in a world constantly being remodeled by tech, PMTQ will be the must-have, make-or-break skill set.
