    Five Must Haves For Project Managers

     

    1. You Must learn to communicate with everyone involved with your project, no matter what level they are at in your business. There is no ‘One size fits all’ approach to communication with your group of people. You need to learn which ways to direct everyone on your team. Everyone is different in the way they need to interact with you, and it is to your advantage to take the time to do this.
    2. You Must have the right resources. Get to know people and what their area of expertise is. Which means that you need to network, and use those contacts as needed. Keep your relationships up to date so that people will build trust with you and be more willing to help with your project.
    3. You Must be a problem solver. Learn how to brainstorm ideas and new solutions to issues that may come up. Delegate tasks and do not micromanage. This should cut down on some of the problems that could arise.
    4. You Must have regular group meetings. Go into your meetings prepared with and agenda, and stay on track so as not to waste everyone’s time. To make sure that everyone came away from the meeting on the same page, email all with any decisions made during the meeting.
    5. You Must close out your project and then celebrate. Make sure you document how the project went and any suggestions for improvements for the next time. Then make sure you celebrate with each team member a job well done. You choose the best way to do that for your particular situation. I personally like going out for a cocktail!
