WILY: The Tale of the Accidental PM

I’ve been around project management for more than a decade and have yet to meet anyone whose career is a straight line into the profession. Most are accidental PMs who began as functional managers doing project work on the side.

In this week’s episode of Colocation, I share my story of taking on roles that I wasn’t sure I was ready for until one day I woke up to find that I was a full-time project manager.

The accidental PM is to be valued and encouraged as a key member of every team or organization, and in this episode I’ll show you why.

Plus, I’ll apologize to all of the PMs who had to chase me to get my work done or for status updates before I knew any better. I’m thinking of you, Pat and Kim!
