A Project Manager plays multiple roles in the organization. He or she has a role towards the team, towards the project, towards the business stakeholders and towards the organization itself.
The days of traditional project management evangelizing the concepts of "Command & Control" are long gone. Especially with Agile software development, the focus is more and more on building self managed teams.
Being a project manager I can understand that it is easy for the project manager to lose his or her mind. Especially if you are under constant pressures of reporting project financials, status reporting, managing your project staffing & recruitment, stakeholder management, distributed teams, risk management, project planning, inceptions, lift-offs, project governance and to top it all, leading a group of different psychological beings who may be responding differently in different situations. There is no one size fits all when it comes to working with human beings, and you have the onus to build a self managed team. Hence, probably it is more apt to call our breed as project leaders than managers, but let us leave that discussion to a different day.
So if you are a project manager and getting stressed due the above mentioned pressures, or if you are clinging to the past styles of project management or you like being "old school", you may not realize but you might have turned into a devil.
How to be sure? Well... this session will offer you a checklist to confirm how close you are to being a devil or already have become one.
