Market research conducted to date, and data collection and other analyses support the claim that there’s not only a need, but a demand for the usage of project management tools and methods for family and private life. However, the novelty and fear of usage associated with the PLM methodology seems to currently hamper people in using this well-structured and beneficial tool.
Hungarian people aren’t sufficiently open for innovation, they’re afraid of new things, rigidly keeping to old, well-tested methods. They don’t realise that every change is an opportunity, that innovation isn’t merely possible, but a necessity. As those who can’t renew, will be left behind in the market scramble.
Though there are innovation centres in Hungary, these only work away from each other. Their technologies, created machinery only find their way to the market slowly, and are spread to everyday work late. SMEs don’t demand these novelties, new solutions enough – they’re not active enough in innovation.
However, a happy fact is that innovation can be learned. Leaders can create a culture which assists the initiative and open nature towards value creating novelties of employees in any industries, mid- and large enterprise context, or even in small enterprises. When creating an innovative work environment, the human factor has a significant importance. A leader who’s capable of creating the innovative environment – where the creativity of employees blooms, their openness towards change improves – has an aware thought process about innovation, and capability to identify the leadership competences in service to innovation. And for all these, the knowledge and employment of project management’s toolset is indispensable.
