Information Session


  • This module is primarily to provide perspective on the project managment profession. I have been contacted by various individuals asking how to 'break into the project management industry'. I attempt to explain that while there is a project management profession, there is no project management industry. There are many industries - probably all - that employ project managers. Most project managers are more closly associated with their industries than they are with their profession. Relatively few of them studied project management in college. They were promoted to project managers because they were doing good jobs on project teams, and the demand for another project manager opened up. I refer to that as a 'battlefield commission'.
