What Makes An Exceptional Project Manager?

What-Makes-An-Exceptional-Project-ManagerWhat makes an exceptional Project Manager is not only ensuring that the project gets delivered within the agreed scope, budget, time & quality constraints but also how well they:

Apply Best Practices:

Organizations, today, look up to  trained/certified Project Staff who have put in Time, Discipline, and Focus to learn and stay up-to-date with best practices in project management as they are in a better position to apply these practices at work! In that process, they also end up contributing in improving/enhancing organization’s overall project management processes.

Standardize Processes using Project Management Templates:

An exceptional Project Manager creates and prefers to use templates, to ensure standardization, save on Time, Effort, and Cost while enhancing Effectiveness and Efficiency.  The idea is to reuse knowledge and bring consistency at different levels of the Project.

Leverage Project Management Software to ensure Project Visibility, Insight & Control:

An exceptional Project Manager understands the value of project management software and takes the lead in leveraging the same within the project. This ensures that the project status is available to all project stakeholders at click of a button and there is only one source of truth at all levels – team members, team lead, project manager, project sponsor and/or the end client.

Archive Lessons Learned:

A good Project Manager archives the lessons learned during a project so that they can be referred to later and contribute to the organizational knowledge base. Bringing lessons learned together actually saves Time, Money, and Effort in handling similar situations in other projects, thereby making job of new/inexperienced project manager easier!

Stay on the path of Professional Development:

Project Managers who lead the Team exceptionally well regularly invest Time, Money, and Energy in keeping up-to-date on latest trends, techniques and advances in the field of Project Management. Even after getting formally trained/certified, they optimally leverage options like online training, self-paced learning or traditional classroom training to keep themselves up-to-date which positively impact their performance at work and enhances their respect amongst peers!
