Strategic Leadership & Fractional CIO
In both good times and bad, your projects must be successful. Whether rolling out a highly technical piece of in-house software or installing and configuring a COTS application, your projects' success has a direct impact on the viability of your company as a whole. Our PMI-certified project managers have the right technical, business, and behavioral skills to execute successfully in any environment.
A successful PM has to understand and comprehend the technology at hand. The job is more than purely administrative; it requires skills that go beyond putting together a Microsoft Project plan. That's a training issue. Simply put, the PM must be comfortable at a hands-on level with technical professionals. But technical skills alone are not enough.
The PM must be able to understand the nuances of business and be comfortable in translating business goals into results. It means understanding commitments and keeping them. It means that the PM knows that "time is money" in the business world. However, business skills alone won't cut it either.
The PM must have the right behavioral skills to tie everything together. The right behavioral skills allow the PM to bridge the gap between technology and business realities to become the trusted advisor who enables the business to achieve its goals through technology, not in spite of it. It means understanding how to manage virtual teams and grasping the complexities of working with people of varying backgrounds. It comes from experience that cannot be found in books or seminars. It's knowledge that comes from direct experience and from the school of hard knocks.
