PM Skills for Life

I wrote a post on PM Skills for Life on Sources of Insight.  PM is short for “Program Manager.”  I’ve been a PM for the past several years, and learned a ton along the journey.  I attempted to do a roundup of some of the key skills and how they help with skilled living.  Enjoy!

    I have a ton of qs to ask you…quite possibly cannot cover this over my blog comment. I wish you were taking mentees in remote locations as well! 🙂

    Thank you.  

    I’m still working on finding a way to share more lessons learned in a more scalable way.

    PMs where a lot of hats.  It’s a little piece of trivia, but one of the ways we’ve distinguished between program managers and product managers in p&p, is we use PgM for Program Manager and PdM for product manager.
