Im someone with a "business" background (supply chain, procurement) that went to work for as a consultant for tech consulting firm after finishing my MBA, but now having trouble finding a project. Got my PSM 1 cert, but not sure what else to do. Not a technical person, never coded. What would you recommend someone in my position to focus on? I'd like to remain on the project management/BA side of the business. TIA!

What type of technology are you in right now?

Does your team do implementations or strategy more?

Implementation heavy team: Pick up knowledge on the various techs your team usually sells, how the SDLC works for them etc. Get a good grasp of the timelines for various components/challenges etc.

Strategy I’m not as familiar with unfortunately. My best guess would be do market research on what type of solutions are out there in the energy sector, and see how they compare to what’s being used in adjacent sectors.
