EXPERTS from home and abroad shared their inspiring and insightful ideas on management at the 8th International Forum on Project Management held at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center yesterday morning as a parallel event of the 17th Conference on International Exchange of Professionals.

The forum, themed “Innovation Leads Integrated Development,” was hosted by China International Talent Exchange Foundation and presented by Project Management Institute (PMI).

Professionals and scholars from home and abroad were invited to share their ideas on how to facilitate the strategic management, talent management and project management of enterprises under the complicated and changing environment in order to achieve integrated and high-quality development.

Invited guest, Dr. Edward J. Hoffman, former U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) chief knowledge officer and CEO of Knowledge Strategies, LLC, delivered a speech titled “Delivering the Future: New Ways of Delivering Project Value.”

Hoffman introduced four principles during his speech, namely collaborative intelligence means machines and people, agility is decision speed and knowledge, build on the ideas of others and your most powerful tool is “guanxi,” which can be literally translated into “relationship.”

For the first principle, Hoffman suggested a mutually supportive relationship between machines and people. With the rapid growth of technologies like 5G networks, Hoffman believes that organizations should also change and adapt rapidly in response to the changing external environment.

As a result, he focused on the idea of agility, which entails quick responses to strategic opportunities, shorter decision, production and review cycles, and integrating new business capabilities.

In terms of the fourth principle, Hoffman said that Chinese values, such as mianzi (face), guanxi (relationship) and renqing (people skills), are also connected with project management. For example, guanxi can mean status and influence within a business or personal network, and renqing, can refer to empathy, people skills and an exchange of favors in a business setting.

Other guests, including Michael DePrisco, vice president of global solutions with PMI, Dr. Jin Hong, PMO head with National Institute of Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy, and professor Ding Ronggui from the School of Management of Shandong University, also made speeches at the forum.
