Project Management Training, Dilberts Rules for Dodgeball


project management training - dilberts rules to dodgeball

Project Manager‘s are responsible for building the team before the Request for Proposal is published and released to the public.  This means that if you want to be on the team you need to stand out all the time.  To do this, all you have to do is focus on three essential attributes:

  • Demonstrated Skills – this means that others need to know the successes you’ve had even when you’re not around.  On internal teams this can be accomplished by ensuring your Project Manager is aware of your work history – often done with a revised internal resume.
  • Demonstrated Character – this means that you’ll have to stick out as someone that consistently chooses to do the right thing by the team and the client.  You can’t prove this unless you clearly communicate the challenges that you’re helping the team overcome.
  • Reliable Processes – you’ll need to follow a set of standard procedures when getting your work done.  If you’ve developed a smarter process that brings extra value to the project or your Project Manager, just let them know so they can include it in the proposal.

If you focus on these three items, you can rest assured that you won’t be the last one picked for the team!
