For the Project Manager

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
We've talked a lot about what the Researching the Value of Project Management study means for executives, but what does it actually mean for the in-the-trenches project manager? How do they benefit?

First of all it re-emphasizes the importance of the work they do.

But listening to interviews with principal investigators Mark Mullaly, PMP, and Janice Thomas, Ph.D., I see it goes beyond that. It helps project managers in a few key ways, including:

1. Understanding what support they need in the organization to be the most effective

2. Implementing the most effective project management practices in their organizations

3. Understanding how project management ties to the strategic direction of their organizations

But it doesn't end there. Once the full report is available, the library of 65 case studies can be used by project managers for lessons learned. It will also help the next generation of project leaders. Several of the academicians I spoke with during and after PMI's Research Conference have said they will be able to take the study and use it in their classrooms. In fact, some of them are already doing precisely that.
