Who should study Project


Management?
Anyone who is directly or indirectly involved in;
initiating, planning, implementing, monitoring, evaluating and/or
controlling a project;
in a position which involves a substantive level of decisionmaking, responsibility, communication and coordination,
should be thoroughly familiar with all the subject areas,
methodology, processes and tools and techniques of project
management.

A good and common project management knowledge platform will increase the
likelihood of the project attaining its goal within time and budget.

What kind of Project Manager are


you?
Accidental Project Manager
Usually, this project manager comes up through the ranks. For instance, a
strong programmer becomes the project manager on a development
project. Or a strong network technician becomes the project manager on a
large network upgrade. These people understand the types of projects that
they are managing, they can build a work plan, and they can assign work
to other team members. However, they don't have a lot of project
management discipline.

Good Project Manager


The second type of project manager understands that successful
project management requires you to manage issues, scope,
communication, risk, etc.

Proactive Project Manager


the third type, is someone who has made the mental transition to
apply his or her discipline on a proactive and ongoing basis.
