Project Manager & The Route To Leadership

Generally project managers in tech companies must have technical background because the project manager is communicating with engineers, designers, programmers, stakeholders, executive leaders, and decision makers. The whole gamut of people inside a high- tech company.

Can you run a project if you do not understand the technology behind it, services, and its purpose of why they are developing that product, software, apps, or whatever that interconnects with that project?

Getting into a project that you do not have a clear understanding of what is it all about is a recipe for project failure.

Secondly, you also need to understand the financial aspects, ROI, budget constraints, effect and affects of that project in the order of change manager in changing management. It is not about entering a number, or numbers, but it the conceptual and actual understanding of why hitting the budget and delivering the project on time is always at the of top priority.

The why’s of why’s, and also the what’s must be addressed consequentially and consistently so that you always have successful project(s).

Project managers are amongst the most engaged community on our platform because they have already developed a managerial skill set.

But many understand they have gaps of knowledge that need improvement for them to reach senior tech leaderships roles, and achieve the career and income they want.
