Timo Kotilainen: Growth is a long term and multi discipline matter

We interviewed our conference speaker Timo Kotilainen about Growth and project management. Timo will speak in the Conference with a title ‘Concept of Balanced Growth – people, company and projects’.


PMI Conference 2018: What is your motivation to be a speaker at the PMI Finland event?

In this age, there is a typically desire to share the accumulated knowledge. Also I have ”this need”. Hopefully that would ease the path of the younger ones. When you give, you get!

What key message would you like to address to the attendees of the PMI Finland Annual Conference?

Growth does not start one day and end in an other. It is a long term and multi discipline matter. I will describe the linkages between the growth and successes of the three aspects very much impacting each other: skillful people, challenging projects and successful company.

What is your buzzword in the world of project management?

Is it just a project, really?

As we move from recessionary period to Growth period, what are the different expectations / challenges for leaders and project managers moving forward?

Manage the growing speed, complexity and inter-dependencies.
