It allows project managers to stay abreast with the latest tools in their industries and diversify their skills. What are the key trends you should be looking out for in the near future. We will discuss future trends in project management and how they can benefit you as a leader. Hybrid Project Management
Hybrid project management is a combination of different planning strategies and traditional project management environments. Hybrid project management is defined by an agile approach and flexible planning. It integrates different methods like Scrum and PMI, while also incorporating elements from other areas. This is the essence of hybrid project management. Combining methods can be both reactive and preventative. One method could have negative effects on another project. Organizations are more open to hybrid project methods, which will include a variety of elements. Elements can come from at most two approaches, but they could also come from more. Different methods of project management are important, including the “waterfall”, and “agile”. You must consider many variables before you decide on one type of management. The Waterfall Method
This is a linear approach to project management. Your team will work on one section at the time using the waterfall approach. Once they have completed one section, they move on the next until the project is complete. This helps to focus and define the timeline but it can also be less flexible. The Agile Method
The agile approach was developed out of the negative aspects of waterfall. It involves a project being broken down into smaller pieces. Sprints are the term for teams that are divided into smaller groups to work on each aspect. After completing a sprint, teams meet together to discuss their progress and resolve any problems. This approach is flexible and preventative. However, it requires a skilled project manager to ensure its success.
The hybrid approach combines agile and/or waterfall to make them work together. This approach is as agile as a waterfall approach, but it aims to clearly define the requirements in advance. The hybrid approach offers many advantages. This trend is being adopted by many companies for a variety of reasons. It has a mix of positives. It is a waterfall approach for project planning. This helps businesses to create solid plans and accurately estimate costs. Teams can quickly respond to changes in the stage by moving to agile. This allows for a more proactive approach. It also allows managers and resources to respond to changes in the requirements.Emotional Intelligence in Leadership
Technical skills are useful in securing deadlines, forward momentum, and EQ is the missing link. Emotional intelligence is a key component of leadership. It refers to the ability to objectively understand and manage one’s emotions.

Multicloud Storage Service Spans AWS Microsoft Azure Nimble Storage Inc. has today launched a beta offering that claims to be the only enterprise-grade multicloud block store service for Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), and Microsoft Azure public cloud. The product is called Nimble Cloud Volumes, and its enterprise-grade availability as well as data services can be used to help organizations move new types enterprise apps to the cloud. Nimble Storage believes that the first wave cloud apps will be mostly content-centric, native Web and mobile apps. They lack enterprise-friendly features like data durability and data services such as snapshots, and the ability to share the same volumes with multiple hosts. The next wave of cloud applications comprises traditional transactional-centric workloads — like transactional databases — moving to the public cloud space, with stringent storage requirements. The company stated that NCV flash-based storage could provide enterprise functionality, opening up new frontiers. It also offers other benefits, such as the elimination of cloud vendor lock-in, better data reliability, and uninterrupted data access. Ajay Singh, a senior executive at AWS, stated that the NCV service delivers flash storage volumes or block storage to AWS EC2 instances and Azure Virtual machines. It offers significant advantages over native cloud block storage services such as Amazon EBS and Azure Disk Volumes. The company highlighted the following three main benefits of the new NCV service:
