Victim or Victor: Taking Control as a Project Manager
Are you Ready to Take Back Control of Your Projects?
Running projects, programs and portfolios involves managing many moving parts and planning for the unexpected. With so much in flux in a project at a given time, it's no surprise that taking control over a project can be the most stressful part of any project manager's job. Added to the complexity of business-level initiatives, many project managers are tasked with running teams over which they little direct authority.
This white paper outlines how project managers can combine empowering tools and relational skills to effectively take back control of their projects, and have direct ownership of their career success:
- Reconciling technical skills against some key tools and approaches project leaders can leverage to more efficiently put those skills into practice.
- Development opportunities for project managers in "relational skills," including communications, strategic alignment, and stakeholder engagement.
- Leveraging technical skills in conjunction with soft skills, empowering project managers to take back control of their projects while developing opportunities for advancement.
