While portfolio and program managers focus on the bigger picture within the Project Management Office (PMO), project managers must direct their efforts on more focused responsibilities. They are the task managers on the ground, keeping projects running smoothly amidst customer demands and resource shortages. It’s a constant struggle to keep projects on time and on budget, but they strive to do it on a daily basis.
In today’s marketplace, projects can vary significantly within one PMO. Scarce resources may be hard to secure – especially in organizations where the squeakiest wheel wins. To get attention, project managers need to present information to upper management in compelling ways. This data must be pertinent and impactful, and it must make the manager’s case for funding, people, equipment, and more.
