It’s critical that project managers recruited and hired have a strong understanding of contractual elements, negotiation tactics and collaborative skills. Evaluating and recruiting top talent with these skills allows companies to effectively navigate a complex supplier network in an increasingly competitive environment.
- Soft Skills: Effective project managers aren’t only adept at the technical and process elements of project management; they also have social-emotional intelligence that enables them to increase team synergy. Our recruiting process assesses social-emotional intelligence, self-awareness, empathy, motivation, and self-regulation, among other soft skills that are important ,like leadership, communication and collaboration. We ensure PMs fit into the company culture and can be successful.
- Agile Project Management: Historically, the Waterfall Method was used in most project management: projects simply followed steps until they were completed. Today, Agile methodologies are continuing to gain momentum and becoming standard for companies across industries. Agile enables companies to quickly adapt scope requirements through the iterative nature of the methodology, which enables flexibility and ends in better results. We recruit project managers familiar and experienced with Agile, capable of capitalizing on the opportunities it offers.
- Managing Remote Workers: Remote work has become a new standard for many companies. Employers are recognizing that, with effective project management, they can achieve the same or better productivity with a remote workforce. Happier employees with a proper work-life balance result in increased productivity. The modern-day project manager needs to be effective and experienced in managing a remote team. Increasingly, our focus is on recruiting project managers who have remote management experience and an understand of how to leverage collaborative tools to achieve exceptional results.
