Q1:     First, thank you for accepting an interview request from PMWJ. You are the president of the Italian Project Management Institute. What is your strategy for the coming years?

Graziano Trasarti (Trasarti):        Thanks to you and PMWJ for the opportunity to introduce the Italian Institute of Project Management to the many PMWJ readers. In the coming years, the association’s strategy will basically follow the same line as in recent years, using our resources to spread and promote the use of the project management discipline. This is the main objective, and in parallel, we want to follow and learn about the evolution of project management in the face of new technologies and new contexts that are developing and which will inevitably influence the methodology of project management.

First, artificial intelligence and sustainability are all contexts that will undoubtedly impact the method of modifying and/or updating project management processes. As a cultural institute, we will delve deeper into and study these new developments. Finally, we will clearly continue with the organization of events, conferences, and webinars and with the updates to our training courses. In short, we still have a lot to do.

Q 2:    Could you remind us of some facts (members, location) about ISIPM and its history?
