For the Project Management professional pursuing a new role, summarising wide-ranging skills and experience is both challenging and crucial to success..

Without them, glass and rebar destined for the skyline would never leave the ground, and ‘mobile phone’ would be a misnomer.  Motorways wouldn’t get an extra lane nor Fashion Week a runway.  Who are we talking about?  The Project Management professional of course – the ‘firefighting’, risk-aware, team-building, budget-monitoring, compliance conscious critical thinking superstars, tasked with delivering ‘high-spec’ results on time and within budget.   The Project Manager wears many hats (not all of them hard) and few professions demand such diversity of skills and ability to direct people and process in challenging, time-critical environments.   

The journey from design to roll-out is rarely smooth and it takes a Project Management professional to mix ‘hard’ skills with ‘soft’ and pull the whole thing together.  Effective communication is key to project success and it frequently falls to the ‘multilingual’ Project Manager with their knowledge of IT, systems and process ‘speak’ to interpret, translate and facilitate.  In April of this year, the Association for Project Management (APM), founded in 1972, will become the Chartered body for the Project profession, a further indication of the value now attached to those charged with overseeing change and progress in every industry and branch of research. 

A quick search for vacancies, returns thousands of results; such is the global demand for Project Management professionals.  As a sector, Project Management has grown in complexity and visibility and now sits firmly front and centre stage of every new endeavour.

For the Project Management professional pursuing a new role, summarising wide-ranging skills and experience is both challenging and crucial to success - what to include and what to emphasise when cross-functionality is every employer’s expectation of every candidate’s CV?
