Ready Your Team for the Digital Future's Delivery Environment
The increasing pace of automation requires you as a project manager to ensure your team is ready for the unique needs of these types of projects. But how can you be prepared to do so when automation-driven efforts can be small or massive?
It’s possible to create a short list of things you can do to build team readiness. Two types of projects—one from the “small” end of the spectrum and one from the “very large” end of the spectrum—will illustrate just how a PM can do so. The good news is that if you are prepared to master the tactics necessary to succeed with the uniqueness, you will become a highly prized resource in the future (where there will only be more automation projects).
