Project management is changing….it's becoming more strategic, more mainstream, and not just synonymous with technology implementations. Today's PM needs to be more than technically adept or be able to whip out a gantt chart. Get a read on some of these crucial skills the everyday PM will need to succeed:
Planning - PM's need to pave the way for the project team and need to design the work in such a way that the team understands what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, who needs to do it, and what dependencies exist among the tasks.
Ability to work virtually - Today's PM's need to be able to work with project teams spread across town, across the country, or across the world. The PM needs to understand how to keep a project team together when the project team can span the globe or cross organizations and ensure that everyone is working out of the same playbook.
