Learn project management to gain skills for strategies

Project management skills are often underestimated because some organizations use these positions for something else. They don’t understand the basics for starting and ending, not continuous status which is operations. Schedule, scope and budget are coming from strategic process and analyzed in portfolio analysis. It means there’s no reason to have a project without a strategic objective, a goal.

 

To be better in project management there are tools like portfolio management and earned value calculation. Background in project management is good for strategy managers. Program manager is more experienced; and in program management level decisions are no longer for one work package or task level like in projects.

 

Certifications can help to learn basics about project management. But real experience is much more important for any project manager. That’s why only through experiences, not just a short term, managers become better. At least need to be part of the project team.
