As a PM I’m not the most technical guy when it comes to certain parts of the project. This makes it hard to do the “go-and-see” portion of continuous learning. Often times when I go-and-see people will try to teach me what they know so I could do their job.
This month I’ve changed tactic a bit. I’ve asked them to show me so I can appreciate what they do.
Instead of deep diving into specifics how-tos I come away with a better understanding of workflow and how it intersects that person’s technical role.
Give it a try in your space.
I’d like to learn more about what you do so I can appreciate your contributions. Can you show much what your day-to-day is like?
