Project Management Careers Advice

ebook-image-for-websiteA few months ago a message was shared many times on LinkedIn: CFO asks CEO: “What happens if we invest in developing our people & then they leave us?” CEO: “What happens if we don’t, and they stay?”. It’s not only the responsibility of the employer but also a responsibility of the employee to invest in themselves. For me learning is key, and not only for myself but also for my teams. I am always looking for opportunities to learn. Sharing best practices, organize pizza sessions where we start with a pizza and than a three hour workshop on a specific topic, storing and retrieving lessons from previous projects, using colleagues for peer reviews before we submit a PID, learning on the job, coaching, give training classes, set up e-learning environments with specific learning paths for all team members using CBT, simulation, videos, etc. I just came across a small free ebook ‘Project Management Careers advice’ from KnowledgeTrain. It features information on how PRINCE2 can aid one’s career, what employers look for when hiring project managers, different types of career in project management and the help that is readily available for the unemployed. Have a look at: http://www.knowledgetrain.co.uk/project-management-career-advice-ebook.php
