Would you like to make 2018 a successful year for your projects? I’m sure you do.
But what does it take to get there?
I asked people two questions:
What should people managing projects be aware of as we go into 2018 to make 2018 their most successful year ever?
What will you be doing in 2018 to have your most successful year ever?
Some amazing, talented people responded: people whom you may know as experts in their field and others, equally as insightful, who will be new to you. Amongst them I count my virtual mentors and project delivery professionals who inspire me.
The collected wisdom in their answers is incredibly valuable. I’m sure you take away tips and ideas for making this your best year yet managing projects at work.
There is one small thing, though. Many of the authors, trainers and experts I contacted wrote back to me with A LOT of information. Even once I’d edited the contributions, they were still over 9,000 words. I couldn’t fit it all in this blog post.
Project managers should pay specific attention to their team’s composition in 2018. Not only in skills, but also in experience and emotional intelligence. Learn what makes the people on your team “tick”. Obviously sometimes the job just has to get done, but working together and knowing your team will help you as a project manager align your resources appropriately.
