The Joy of Being Project Manager – How to be Lucky in the PM World? – conversation with Marisa Silva

Aneta Catalan Sikorska

Strefa PMI nr 34, Wrzesień 2021

A conversation with Marisa Silva – the Lucky PM, passionate and intrigued by projects. The interview has been conducted by Aneta Catalan Sikorska. I cannot start with the other questions until I ask about “The Lucky PM”. Is there any story behind it? Because when you talk about the PM world, I can see how much you enjoy it. But maybe “Lucky” doesn’t only mean that you love what you do, maybe you are lucky because you still improve the PM/PMO world. Thank you, first of all, for such kind words. I do try to share my passion and leave my mark in the community at least! Not really a story but there are three main reasons for my luckiness. First, I think that chance or luck plays such an important role in what happens in our life and projects, even if we prefer to ignore it. Sometimes it’s just a matter of being in the right place at the right time and I think that, although talent is fundamental, we need to acknowledge fortunate accidents too. Second, there’s this saying that goes as “there are no good project managers, only lucky ones: the more you plan, the luckier you get”, which I fully agree with because luck also requires hard work and preparation. Finally, because I’ve been very lucky to grown and learn with amazing colleagues, clients, organizations, and project teams. And, of course, I call myself “The Lucky Project Manager” because “The Lazy Project Manager” was already taken!

Co zatruwa im niedzielne wieczory? Czy bardziej o ból głowy przyprawiają ich zespoły, czy raczej klienci? Czy Excel faktycznie jest ulubionym narzędziem każdego PMa? O to i o wiele więcej zapytaliśmy w przeprowadzonym w połowie 2020 roku badaniu. Zapraszam do zapoznania się z relacją z naszych przygód przy jego wykonywaniu oraz kluczowych wyników i wniosków.

Wartość dodana z kierownika projektu

Maciej Bodych

26-01-2021

Strefa PMI nr 31, Listopad 2020

Roli i wartości z kierownika projektów nie trzeba przedstawiać, szczególne czytelni­kom „Strefy PMI”. Umiejętność planowa­nia, przywództwa, kontroli czy wyciągania wniosków stanowi aktualnie kanon pra­cy menedżera projektu. Niestety bardzo często efektów pracy nie widać wprost, bo kiedy projekt idzie dobrze, to przecież kierownik „tylko odcina kupony od dobre­go planowania”. Dodatkowo można usły­szeć zarzuty w takiej sytuacji w postaci słów: „nasi kierownicy projektów nie dają wartości dodanej”, to „forward mene­dżerowie”, którzy tylko przesyłają prośby dyrekcji do zespołu i raportują dane od ze­społu do dyrekcji.

Project Manager’s kaleidoscope

Being a Project Manager you need to act in different roles at once depending on many factors in a certain time. Nowadays in the DNA of the PM there is an ability to play and juggle different roles and responsibilities for the success of the project. You as PM need to be a functional or hierarchical manager, sales person, finance manager, change manager, risk manager etc. at once. Sometimes you ought to be a psychologist as well or even play a role of devil’s advocate to make sure your team will achieve their deliverables in the boundaries of the project. Sounds like you shall see your projects as if they are pictures in a kaleidoscope to lead your Team to success and bring customer satisfaction - from different angles, in different shades and colors.
