In presentation given on August 21, I spoke about time management in projects. The whole presentation was supported by case studies. I’ve talked about issues like scheduling and delegating tasks and deciding what to do first. There were also presented techniques more or less known, which can be used to effectively manage your time.
I took part in a few events last days, which were significant for my perception of how to manage a project.
One of them was road bike marathon in beautiful region of Poland, called Kashubian Lakeland. When I was squeezing sweat between one uphill and another, I thought about similarities between a project and my bike ride.
In demand and in vogue – Project Manager jobs attract more and more attention. Is that because of a lucrative career path ? Or maybe because of the opportunity to rule and dominate? We can speculate… But one thing is sure – this profession requires not only the candidate’s willingness but also some quite special character traits.
From the perspective of project member, there are some particularly annoying types of PM’s behavior. It’s hard to say whether this is due to the character traits which distinguish people performing this profession, or whether is due to the specific nature of their work. One thing is sure – certain methods of treatment and Project Managers’ attitudes tend to be truly irritating and annoying.
