Core to the execution of your strategic choices is Project Management. It delivers insight to progress and the ability to steer and adjust where needed. Too many project managers do not understand technology and have great difficulty differentiating high impact issues from minor details because of it. I often see project managers struggle and do little more than ask people what they are doing and reporting what they have come across. This is exactly what Peter Drucker meant by ‘Ninety percent of what we call ‘management’ consists of making it difficult for people to get things done’.
The lack of true leadership and technology insight brings the best above in people involved in projects. I consider the team members fully capable and as such can benefit from a great deal of self-steering. Modern approaches like Agile and Scrum put planning and execution back in the hands of the team.
I, as the project manager, am much more involved in the technical discussions and am the catalyst for continues improvement and also the partner of the business. Tasks that I performe can lie on both sides of the spectrum: as a scrum master role and the product owner role. This fusion of business and technology is where I as the project manager take center stage by having experience in both world and connecting these two to fuse them to become one.
Looking forward to having a great discussion around your specific situation and your challenges. Let’s connect, discuss your specific situation and challenge and see what I can do for your business.
