10 Things New Project Managers Should Know

When starting a new job it is common to make a few mistakes, especially when your company does not offer any formal mentoring program for new employees. Below are a few simple tips to help new project managers avoid making rookie errors. First make sure you can manage changes to the scope of your project. Even though scope is set at the beginning, it can often change. Also, make sure you understand the terminology related to your project. You should also create a common goal so that everyone working on the project is aware of what the outcome should be; and you should continually review for success. A successful project manager will also understand the risks and benefits associated with the project and will learn to cope and adapt when things go wrong.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand where your project is, where it is going, and how it began at all times
  • Learn how to manage setbacks quickly and effectively by monitoring risks and showstoppers
  • Prepare yourself for a world of uncertainty and know that you will make mistakes but welcome them as learning experiences for future endeavors

“Projects are most successful when everyone knows what they are doing and why.”
