Discover what a career in project management could look like for you, and the steps required to get there.
Are you ready for the next step?
As you learn and gain more experience, it’s beneficial to upskill and formally prepare yourself to take on more responsibility. The managerial experience required to excel as a Project Manager combines a number of hard and soft skills. You must possess a high level of technical skills, along with an adequate level of humanistic capabilities like leadership and communication.
It’s useful to make a personal assessment of your strengths and areas of improvement as you seek to qualify your skills. Ask yourself questions like, what am I good at? In what areas do I regularly seek assistance? What am I yet to learn? This will help to determine whether you should undertake any further training before you progress with the next step.
