New to Project Management. Today my company asked me to PM a new customer Project. The Project is assigned a team with a technical lead. My career so far has been in development, but I have already been a lead on projects where managers had little presence and I had to do a lot of customer interactions. However, I have never been present in a project kick-off and high level decision making processes. What do I need to find out on early stages of the discussion, and what to ask in onboarding?
B4 strategy or general 🐠, would love your advice. Currently, 2 YOE at a well known non B4 firm doing PI/Transformation work. I didn’t get promoted this year because I didn’t have enough experience in my particular group because I was staffed on a different project for awhile. I’m interested in Strategy analyst roles (1 YOE). Will me not being promoted hurt my chances? I’ll probably get promoted at the beginning of 2022. Should I wait until then to apply? Thanks.
