The world of projects, as well as many other disciplines, has moved its focus from a hard approach to a soft approach, from traditional methodologies to new methodologies.

Even if this trend was quite consolidated, but never as recently there has been a so strong focus on these aspects, with such a large number of events and initiatives to reinforce its importance.

As evidence of this in the first months of 2014 there were numerous events that involved the professionals from the industry.

In particular, we make reference to the event “Collaboration in Virtual Teams” organized by IPMA Italy, as well as the one on “Culture, Skills, Organization,” up to the application of new methodologies, such as “Agile for Innovation.

In this month’s report we will give a broad overview of the events mentioned and other initiatives that have characterized the Italian project management in the first quarter of the year.
