- Industry challenges or disruptors (e.g. AI, IoT, Cloud Computing, Legislation, changes in the workforce)
- PM methodologies used by industry (e.g. waterfall vs. agile - lean, scrum, Kanban, etc.)

Background: According to PMI.org, the outlook for PM careers is better than it's been in years.
The global economy is surging—boosting job markets across sectors and continents. The global GDP growth projection of 3.7 percent for this year represents a slight uptick from 2017, according to the International Monetary Fund. Of course, project professionals know they're in a good spot: 22 million new project-oriented jobs will be created between 2017 and 2027, according to PMI's Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap report.
But not all industries are on the same footing or looking for the same kinds of project talent. Healthcare organizations might demand different skills than a hirer at a telecom. And while more than half of CEOs plan to increase headcount, they're having trouble finding the right skills, according to PwC's 2017 CEO Survey. However, all sectors are looking to transform, which means there's a need for organizations to add innovative thinkers and talent that can help them increase their digital footprints.
