A project manager’s job demands ingenuity and creative ideas. To achieve it, you must have diverse skills and let go of obsolete mindsets. However, when it comes to projects, managers do not require a tough battle but a tinge of motivation and commitment. In this article at PMWorld 360, Christopher Cook suggests ideas to become a creative project manager.
Get Used to Pressure
As a project manager, you must lead by example and represent your company as an institution to experiment by nurturing talent. Only you can save your team from falling off the edge by developing a solid fence around it. Follow these significant steps to explore new horizons:
Meetings are important because they give you clarity over the next steps. Project managers often leave meetings with a range of ideas in mind. Instead of opting to be silent, act to deliver results without command. Your actions should signify progress.
You cannot afford to debate project requirements for long. Therefore, your daily standup meetings must be precise and valuable. Employees feel uncomfortable standing for long and talk. Similarly, the virtual standup meetings must remain brief to get necessary things done. Short sessions save the team’s productivity.
Each project meeting must have a purpose that the attendants must achieve by the end of it. Be it a project scope, resource, or any other concern, make sure you resolve it in the meeting. To push your boundaries, clarity of thoughts and an agile mindset are critical.
As a project manager, your job is to think strategically and avert on-the-job pressure from your teams. Innovation is the by-product of an experiment, not lengthy discussions. To succeed in all projects, your team must adopt proactive learning, encourage a flexible mindset, and take calculated risks.
