Looking into the brain of a Project Manager

Apr 30, 2009 | |
I get mails from my blog readers- all interesting questions and thank you for taking the time to do it.

This one was however different, the reader emailed me saying that as a "software developer" he wants to know how Project Managers do the trick and sends me a list of questions.
I decided to post it here to make sure he has more help than I can give him alone- plunging into the minds of Project Managers.

Reader asks:
  • How do you select/choose the best possible candidate of your technical team? Do you have some sort of criteria / selection process which you may want to share?
  • How do you ensure that each person on your project team is highly motivated?
  • How do you cope when one (or some) of your project(s) is/are
    getting way behind schedules and upper management is pinching you on
    the matter?
  • How do you decide on the methodology with which to apply on your project?
  • Best advice (or something learned) ever from a person on your project team?
Helping someone learn is great and he seems sincere in his efforts at least. Take your pick Project Managers and please help him out!
