You founded your high school’s Robotics Club, and went on to earn an Engineering degree at a good college. You’ve built your reputation as a Tech God, sacrificing weekends and holidays along the way. And now, you’re….a referee? What happened? David Cotgreave helps you understand what’s behind the daily drama that’s been dominating your time.
- thanks to the nature of our increasingly digitized business world now, IT leaders are dealing with lots of different members of their firm’s team from very different backgrounds and with very different agendas
- The skills gap means that team members are often getting poached by checkbook-waving competitors. This causes resentment on two levels; those left behind are jealous of their former colleagues’ success (and increased pay packets) but more so the extra workload carried by the smaller remaining team
- The lesson is that we shouldn’t struggle alone. Online project management forums are a great resource — a dispute within your project may have played out during someone else’s — often the solution has already been tried and tested elsewhere.
“Great project managers seem to be able to stay a step ahead of such conflict Usually, having an independent pair of eyes take a look at your project portfolio can identify potential conflicts and resource bottlenecks before they happen and suggest resources that can be bought in to bolster your in-house offer.”
