We have all heard the saying “There is no I in team.” It takes communication and collaboration to really make a project successful. Then why do we still struggle with cooperation in groups?
A Marketing Automation Leader, Technologist, Speaker, Marketo Champion, Global Marketing Operations Manager at Amazon Web Services, Darrell Alfonso, shares his experience in project management and success.
- Miscommunication occurs often if there is not an open conversation on project objectives. Remember that not everyone thinks like you or has the same goals.
- “Find what works well for your customers and make it even better.” ~Darrel Alfonso
- When it comes to project management for mid-sized companies, be sure to keep your stakeholders updated and motivated with milestones to get something successful through the door.
- Don’t discount the value of experience. People who have more experience have had more time to understand and pick up patterns.
- Build with a Training Mindset. Train others and build your processes and programs with the idea that other people will use it!
- Career advice: Work hard but find the time to relax.
