Even with the best project team, huge resources available, years of experience and no looming deadline - things can go wrong. You will inevitably face new challenges and new obstacles and it is the role of the project manager to overcome these - ALONE.
Being a project manager can be very lonely indeed.
You are on your own at the end of day. The outcome of the project rests on your shoulders - and yours alone.
When things get tough or you hit a new situation, it is difficult to know who to turn to for advice, support and help.
When you have a medical issue, it is easy, you go to the doctor.
When you have a computer issue you go to IT.
But when you have an issue delivering a project who do you turn to?
You can choose to go to your boss. However, that is not always a sensible thing to do as it can present you as being incompetent.
You could decide to share your issue with the client or stakeholder. This is never a good idea - Don’t consider it
You could turn to a family member? Are they going to be interested? Probably not. Neither will they have the understanding of what is invovled.
You could turn to your original Agile or PRINCE2 trainer as an option? However, they are likely to be far too busy and take ages to get back to you.
