Project managers may find it tempting to opt in to a project management role in the transformation, but before saying “yes,” they should understand how the transformation team is structured, how talents are acquired, what skill sets are needed, and what key considerations to look for.
For many employers, there are only two arms to The PMI Talent Triangle®. But what about strategic and business management? That’s an area where not every employer believes project managers need to have skills. And that’s a problem. How do we change that perception?
