If you pay attention to what’s going on in the field of project management, you
can learn from everyone’s successes
and mistakes so that you can be better
at your job.
This means knowing all of the tools and
techniques, how and when to use them.
It’s not enough to know what you need to do—you’ve got to deliver, too. This one is all about keeping your nose to the grindstone and doing good work. You and your team will have to work hard to deliver a successful project.
Since you’re managing people, you’ve
got to pay attention to what motivates
them and what makes things harder
on them. Your job as a PM is to make
personal connections with your team
and help keep everybody on the right
As a PM, you’ve got to lead your team through the project lifecycle, so you
need to be skilled at managing people
if you’re going to be successful, even if
they don’t report to you directly.
