Are You a Project Manager? To determine your level of influence on your project teams, and whether your organization is making the most of your potential, you need a solid understanding of how your role is defined. This will ultimately impact the way that you communicate with your team, as well as your ability to efficiently and effectively complete your projects.
Many large work initiatives run as projects would be more successful managed as programs. Such misdiagnosed projects include dimensions of size, complexity and duration that challenge the project perspective and lead to a higher likelihood of failure. A different methodology is called for, one that recognizes the difference between a program and a project and adopts the right set of skills to the task.
