Da li ste odličan projektni menadžer? Testirajte se brzim kvizom kompanije TenStep ( http://www.tenstep.com )

Are you a strong project manager? Take the following TenStep quiz to find out. The following questions have been worded in a way that will allow you to answer “yes” or “no,” even though there are shades of gray on some of them as well. Take out a sheet of paper and look at these ten project management skills and behaviors.
(Y / N) You don’t plan well because you consider yourself a “doer” rather than a planner. Many people consider themselves action oriented. When they are given an assignment, their first tendency is to jump in and solve the problem. The question has a built-in bias, since it implies that “planning” is not “doing”. Still, answer yes or no.

(Y / N) You manage with minimal collaboration and interaction with customers and team members. This is the classic case of the person who feels more comfortable working alone. Many people think they are more productive this way. They work by themselves on the project plan, hand out work assignments and manage the projects in front of their computer. 

(Y / N) You tend to make excuses for problems rather than take responsibility. Some project managers understand they are responsible for most of what goes on within a project. Others prefer to rationalize why expectations are not met. What is your preference? Do you try to explain the problems away or do you strive to eliminate the causes of problems and failures?

(Y / N) You are an order-taker. Does client-focused behavior to you mean that you take on whatever the client wants? Or do you push back against unreasonable requests. Do you invoke scope change processes to manage changes to the project.

(Y / N) You let problems sit until they become disasters? Let’s face it. There are many procrastinators around. Do you consider project problems to be nuisances that you hope will go away? Do you focus on problems only after they reach a high-enough threshold that they are impacting the project?

(Y / N) You don’t create a schedule, or you do not keep it up to date. Many project managers create a project schedule, but then they never update it, or they abandon it somewhere in the project lifecycle. If they are asked how much work is remaining, they have a vague idea, but cannot quantify the remaining effort.

(Y / N) You would rather deliver poor quality than admit you need more time. Many projects finish on time and within budget, but do so only at the expense of quality and complete functionality. These project managers believe they will deliver on time, and then fix the problems in production. Are you one of them?

(Y / N) You manage surprises at the last minute rather than manage expectations. This trait may be caused by a tendency to be overly optimistic about what can be done in a short time frame, or perhaps a sign of not being a proactive communicator. Sometimes project managers even purposely withhold information in hopes the situation will go away. 

(Y / N) You ignore risks. Some risks can be seen from the start of a project. Other risks can be viewed later while the project is executing. Many project managers don’t even consider risk management as a part of their project responsibilities. Other managers can identify risk, but then they do nothing about it until it is too late.

(Y / N) You communicate the minimum information required. It is surprising how many project managers think that communication is one of the drudgeries of the job. They don’t have regular status meetings and they spend the least time they can on status updates. Would project management be much easier if you did not have to deal with people?

Score yourself

Okay, now add up the "yes" answers. There were ten categories total, right? The number grades should be as follows:

“0” - If you did not answer yes to any category, you likely have a good chance of success as a project manager.

“1” – You are not perfect, but pretty solid. Work on the category so that you can answer “no” in the future.

“2” – This is a borderline score. Depending on what the two categories are, you may be able to overcome the weaknesses through additional focus.

More the “2” – If you answered "yes" to three or more categories, you have work to do on your project management mindset. This doesn’t mean you are a bad person. But, given the categories above, you should question your knowledge and practice of good project management practices, or else your overall motivation for taking on project management work. Perhaps you can focus on these areas for improvement and take the test again in six months.
