How to Stand Out as a Project Manager

 

This is a blog about using project tools.  But if you think about it, we use project tools to help us be better Project Managers, to stand out, to make a difference in our organization, to become more efficient, to help our company beat the competition or accomplish its goals.  This is true whether we are officially "Project Managers" or are tasked with fulfilling those functions.  I believe that if we understand and become proficient at properly utilizing project tools in our organization, we stand out and can make a positive difference.

 

With that in mind, I just watched a good presentation by Erika Flora on “5 Ways to Stand out as a Project Manager” at http://blog.erikaflora.com.  Erika provides some good thinking points and reminders on some great ways to stand out.  No, using project tools is not one of them.  But she makes some excellent points.  I especially like her points about taking on new and interesting opportunities, learning something new everyday, and doing something that we can be proud of.  Too often we get into a rut.
