With my vendor transition going live on Monday, I look ahead to my next endeavor. Though my work in project management is not finished, I will be helping out with a different kind of change over the next six months. As we work to stabilize the final team transitioned over to our organization, I have agreed to help as the team lead. This represents a change for me as well as the team as I help lead this organizational change.
Prior to the decision to make this change, the team was disjointed. People were unsure of who they were supposed to report to and had no real support system in place. I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with this team in providing the necessary support, but also bringing them back together as a team.
- Honest, Open
- Has a clear vision and can communicate it
- Can walk the talk
Though this organizational change is not without challenges, I am confident I will be able to use the insight I have gained from previous changes to navigate my way through and issues that may arise.
