Are you a software or IT engineer who wants get move into management?
- Do you feel you have hit a glass ceiling in terms of your career growth?
Well becoming a project manager with IT background will fast track you into the management careers.
The software industry is one of the fastest growing industries across the globe. As the software industry grows into unimaginable size, one of the most critical roles in the software industry is that of a software Project Manager.
A software project has many moving parts which need to to be managed as an entire stream of activities which must be completed in a nicely choreographed manner. Each of these activities has its own goals, schedules, resources, and costs associated with each of them. Without a Software Project Manager, it becomes next to impossible for the organizations to properly execute on all the aspects of the project activities and deliver the software to a client within the stipulated timeline and under the budgeted cost.
Software Project Management involves many stages or phases in the entire Software Development cycle or lifetime. These may vary slightly from organization to organization. However, the fundamental principles of Software Project Management remain the same.
At a high level, the Software Project Manager along with the team initiates a Project, Plans the project, Executes the Project and complete the Project.
Of course, this is a very brief and high-level description of what an actual project manager does – but the whole success of the software project relies on how effectively the project manager manages the project. A software or IT project can be managed using various methodologies; like the Waterfall Model and Agile model. In the project, we will go over these methodologies and all other aspects of software and IT project management.
As companies struggle to find skilled project managers; experienced software and IT Engineers are in a great place to be able to learn the skills required for project management and move into these roles. As seasoned engineers you already have the technical know-how and depth about how software is built. Once you learn the management aspects of software and IT projects you will be able to manage these projects much more efficiently and effectively by applying your existing skills.
