In the last twenty years IT has gone from a department in the basement to an operations-critical unit with great visibility in the organization. While the need for technical professionals is growing rapidly each year, molding technical professionals into elite project managers is a challenge facing many organizations. Successful IT project managers are now challenged with new career demands. They must think – and speak – like a leader.
Alan Garvey of ComputerWeekly recently released his list of the top skills that technical professionals must develop to become impactful and successful IT project managers. Garvey listed these skills as his top three:
- Change Management
- Leadership and General Management
- Succession Management
