Smartcities and Project Management

Main Speaker: Yohan Abrahams
Cities have become our preferred living environment with the World Bank predicting that by 2050, seven of every ten of us will live in urban surroundings. Currently cities generate 80% of global GDP and account for 75% of the world’s energy usage. Cities also attract quite a lot of investment aimed at solving common challenges including air pollution, traffic congestion, affordable housing and reducing greenhouse emissions. This investment in change creates many opportunities for project management professionals.
What are the skills and competencies we need to successfully deliver projects in cities? Many of the challenges cities face are so complex that they can only be solved through a collaborative approach. They can only be solved through innovative thinking because we have not faced them before. And we use data in a big way to resolve these challenges and seize our opportunities.
We have come up with a term to identify cities that use technology and creative thinking to enhance the quality and performance of urban services.
We call them Smart Cities.
At this session, we look at some of the key projects in the Air Quality and Environment portfolio that Transport for London delivers on behalf of the Mayor of London and the project management structures and process that we have evolved to keep one of the great Smart Cities of the world moving and growing.
