What does it mean to be a Manager? The first answer that comes to my mind is to make things happen with the best possible results and the least possible problems. That’s the easiest way for me to answer every time someone outside the Software Development industry asks me about what I do.
Okay, but how do you achieve that? As an IT Project Manager, you need to identify and apply the best techniques, processes and tools for organizing and coordinating a group of individuals working towards a common goal or task. First of all, keep in mind that these items are not simply fixed lists that you find through a Google search; just combining them will not always work as expected under different scenarios.
