Lean, green, and keen!
As companies look for improving efficiency and technology processes during hard economic times, directors, analysts, and managers are expected to think lean and be innovative in the workplace. There is a growing need for resourceful project managers in financial, technology, and legal sectors, as well as in energy and healthcare. Bonus! Project managers enjoyed earning more during the recession compared to the past two years, according to the PMI® Project Management Salary Survey. Independent consultants are also in high in demand, as companies try to save money by hiring one-off consultants for large-scale projects in need of management. Going green with virtual meetings and teams will easily play into this need for independent consultants.
