It’s not enough to just sit back and let the project manager direct the course of the project – you need to understand the processes, the terminology and the expectations of project team members too.
Everyone working on a project needs some basic project management skills. Having a consistent approach to how everyone is going to collaborate on the project means a better job all around: better requirements definition, better time estimates, better schedule … better results!
So don’t assume everyone knows how to work on projects, give them the training and understanding they need to ensure a successful outcome. A little project management training can go a long way – for you!
