What will become the main factor of effectiveness of projects in 2020?
I think the main factors of effectiveness of projects in 2020 are:
Smart team and leader who supports the process.
Good project planning. It means, that you always should be ten steps ahead and always should know “what’s next”.
Empathy, good communication skills.
Visioning, Big-picture thinking. It means, that you always should see the end of project before it’s completed.
Creativity. Improving your creativity whole life.
Continuous learning, upgrading technical skills.
Motivation. It helps to seek your goals.
Implementation of modern project management tools (apps, cloud, etc.)
How important creative is for successful brand communications and business results?
Companies, that are more creative, gain greater business benefits. Creativity helps you to create a brand communication, narrate your brand story, identify brand and build consumer trust. People love stories, and through them, become loyal. Good design is more than just aesthetics, it begins from creative concepts, then combines words, images, colors, typography, even sounds and smells in one recognizable brand identity system.
