Surviving a Day as Project ManagerA project manager is usually appointed by a commissioning body (management, steering/control group or external clients) for the planned duration of a project and is given corresponding powers of attorney and responsibilities. The tasks and competencies depend on the project content and are assigned individually. In most cases, the project is embedded in a matrix project organization, so that the project manager only receives technical competencies, but no disciplinary competencies. In this course, an internationally experienced Project Director will provide you with insights into the different project cultures and structures, so that you will be able to better navigate your daily project life in the future and tackle challenges in a targeted manner.
