Working in an industry that moves so fast, we are inherently adaptable and open to new processes, ideas, practices, and deliverables. We follow what's happening in our industry from all angles, and do what we can to account for change to make our projects more successful. We're open to bettering ourselves, and our peers, by sharing our work and practices openly and freely with other DPMs as well as our team, clients and stakeholders. We recognize that learning and teaching builds trust in what we do, and benefits others, and leads to stronger partnerships and outcomes.
In this installment of Sprints & Milestones, Brett and Greg share their personal stories of how they landed in design and project management careers. They also discuss the importance of continuous learning and teaching in the digital space to push yourself - and others - to be better. It's not about learning everything in school, in fact, it's all about learning on the job.
Some topics discussed include:
- Finding your role, but also finding what you love to do and continuing to grow within that role
- The value of certifications Being a part-time project manager when your focus is in another area of a project
- Resources for learning about project management for PMs and non-PMs alike
- The value of community How teaching can bring about learning opportunities
