项目经理的内心世界--项目管理思维

33 2024-07-11
Article Summary

Pat Lucey, an experienced project manager and entrepreneur with notable certifications like PMP and PMI-ACP, has been in the field for over two decades. After co-founding Aspira in 2007 and serving as CEO until 2022, Lucey has been heavily involved with the Project Management Institute (PMI), contributing over ten years to its growth and recently being elected to the PMI Global Board of Directors for 2024-2026.

Lucey stumbled into project management while working as a software engineer at Motorola, where his knack for control led to managing a small project. This sparked his interest in the planning, organizing, and coordination aspects of the role. He went on to pursue formal project management education and certifications, finding value in tools like the Work Breakdown Structure and furthering his expertise with agile certifications.

Lucey views project management certifications as essential for those aiming to be professional project managers but less critical for those simply looking to improve their work efficiency. He likens having a PM certification to holding a driver's license; it doesn't guarantee excellence but is a necessary credential.

Transitioning from a role at Motorola to entrepreneurship after the company's closure in Ireland, Lucey and a colleague seized the chance to start Aspira, leveraging their project management mentality to impress clients with detailed project plans and documents. After 15 years leading Aspira, Lucey appreciates the similarities between project management and entrepreneurial thinking, particularly in managing tasks, nurturing talent, and balancing risk-taking with cautious risk management.

Lucey advises aspiring project managers to be selective with the advice they take, work hard, and cultivate luck through generosity, authenticity, resilience, teamwork, networking, and a positive risk culture. He emphasizes that some risks, such as those affecting quality or team safety, are never worth taking.

In closing, Lucey encourages readers to consider project management as a career, highlighting its versatility, demand, and the excitement of no two days being the same.
