Where Companies Fail
Great Project Managers are hard to find. Great Technical Project Managers are even harder to find. For most companies, hiring technical project managers isn't a long term plan. There's a few typical problems with the world that revolves project managers:
- Companies hire an IT Project Manager, then the projects get completed. Then they lay off the Project Manager.
- The Project Managers get bored, because let's face it, the projects are boring.
- A lot of roles that not typical of a Project Manager, get stuffed in the role.
- Didn't plan out the position well, as most don't know how to manage technical projects if they've never done it before.
