Find deliverables from past and similar projects to understand the main activities, decision points, deliverables, and interdependencies. Then talk to someone that has done this before for insight and lessons learned (e.g. what should I worry about). Good luck!


I wish more people would do what D1 said!

Read SOW, read client’s 10k to get broad context and background (if publicly traded), reach out to colleagues who are/were involved in /current/past projects with the same account/buyer to get their perspective on the project, division, political sensitivities, etc

Tech companies are mostly built up of 22ish-40ish year olds (not data, just how it feels) which makes sense as tech has been booming for only 20ish years. What happens in the next 10-20 years when the ones who are older for tech now, become actually old for the workforce. Do we get phased out by young people due to lack of relevancy? Or will we have 50-60 year old SAAS sales people, project managers, etc, still in the space and about to retire?

Hi everyone, would like to know the Bowl's thoughts on this: I am a recent MBA graduate who has joined one of the cloud computing firms. It's all good. Loving the new job. But I would eventually want to make a move to Google. I am a project manager and would like to know the opportunities at Google for me in the future. What skills should I have? What roles should I look out for and when would it be best to switch?

Current analyst (1.5 YOE) here with a strong interest in DevOps and Project Management. I feel like I am slowly but surely getting pigeon-holed in L&D work. I don’t like it, but my leaders continue to tell me that all experience is good experience. Should I try to breakout and find a variety of experience this early in my career or should I try to make it to 3 years and re-evaluate then? Have you had a similar experience? What have you done?
