Virtual Project Management is super hot and very cool! Managing teams and coordinating projects around the globe is virtually the way work gets done these days … online business and project management rules!
More and more professionals and business owners rely on virtual project managers to help drive their business strategies and run their projects. We know the challenge of managing client relationships while trying to direct a team or contractors – that’s why you need a virtual project manager to mind your business and get the work done.
A successful virtual project manager is a great communicator, with a clearly defined plan and a good routine in place with the team members tasked to complete the work. This also means being a good listener, converting the client’s vision into tasks that the team can deliver to meet the goals of the project.
Being a project manager can also feel like you’re in a ‘pressure cooker’ at times. On top of the delegation, monitoring and problem solving you do, you also have to be a firefighter when things fall apart. Staying ‘cool under pressure’ and knowing what to do when things go wrong is a sure fire way to demonstrate value as a project manager. Your client is depending on you to get things under control and save the day when disaster strikes. Remaining calm, evaluating the situation and putting the best course of action in place is the way to ‘be cool.’
