It’s All About People

Project managers are usually tasked with some form of project governance while attempting to maintain a positive relationship with their internal clients. This is a tightrope indeed! They must satisfy the finance group by keeping everything under budget and the delivery group by making sure everything is executed on time. The project manager’s success depends on their ability to understand who they work with and the best way to influence and guide during the process.

We end with follow up with some tried and true communications strategies that support achievement and relationships simultaneously.
