The future of project management is designing PM methodologies around the beings that predict and deliver projects: humans. The institute (www.behavioralpm.com) is using neuroscience, behavioral, and cognitive science to do just that. And this isn’t just soft skills; it’s actually ‘designing’ project methodologies and processes around the brain. This emerging discipline is called Behavioral Project Management. If you’ve heard of the book Freakonomics or the disciplines of Behavioral Economics or Decision Science, this is similar to those fields.
