Finding the perfect project manager, is no easy feat. There are a number of things you should do as well as should not do. Being specific, is one of the essential things you need to convey, in order to find the right fit. You will need to explain the project in detail, not in an overview format. This will allow your candidate to know if they will be able to fit the bill. Additionally, it is not only their talents with the project, but their interpersonal skills, they need to be able to deal properly with people as well as well as be a successful leader.
- You’ll want to get a project manager with relevant experience in your industry and your sort of project, because the right, or wrong, PM can help or hurt your project enormously.
- Provide your candidate with clear requirements to consider, including project goals and regulation and compliance concerns.
- Remember gold on paper isn’t everything, because you want a candidate with leadership and interpersonal skill that is only seen in life interaction.
