In #BUSINESS SAVVY PM tweet, PM veteran Cinda Voegtli shows you how. All you need to do as a project manager is to get business savvy!
So who or what makes a business savvy PM? In Cinda’s words, “a business savvy project leader becomes an advocate for the project from the perspective of its end customers and its business value to the company. She or he focuses on clarity and communications with everyone—project sponsors, the team and customers. The business savvy PM knows that the success of a project depends on building relationships that engender trust.” In short, such a manager quickly wins respect as a leader from the starting line.
Cinda Voegtli’s experience shines through, cover to cover, and it’s no surprise that praise for the book has been flowing in.

Among other things, you will develop a keen sense of the company’s strategy, and of how your project fits in the big picture. With tweetable, actionable bits of wisdom like “Insist on knowing the project selection criteria & process that led to this project. Why does it exist?” this little book gets you business savvy—about your project, your organization, and yourself.
