Ever wondered why things just aren’t coming together? You’ve got lots of great talent at your disposal, a decent amount of time and a client that’s willing to pay. You have it all, right, so what’s the problem? No management – that’s what. There’s no overarching process and person to keep it all under control so everything gets done.
A project manager coordinates all the players, draws clear requirements out of clients, sets the ground rules for how the project team is going operate, communicates status in all directions (up, down and across) and makes sure everyone and everything is moving towards the goal line. Adding the project management element to your business processes will give your service the professional polish everyone craves, a reputation you’ve earned and results that will impress your clients.
So before you start thinking you have everything you need, consider the benefits and boost project management skills can give you and your business. You CAN have it all!
