did you become an engineer? This is a
fundamental question many engineers can readily answer. Typically, they say they became engineers
because they were interested in construction, liked to solve problems, or
enjoyed seeing their work turned into a reality. Rarely, however, would they say they became
an engineer because they wanted to be a project manager! Those who are managing projects typically
ended up in the role because of management skills they acquired (often by
accident-not because of a plan). A
rare few have the most important skill of all-they are good communicators--able
to write well, have good public speaking skills and are excellent at
listening. For engineers who become
PMs, technical skills are important, but these are needed to support, not
replace their ability to be effective project managers.
