At the earliest levels of athletics, coaches are asked to teach players the basic tenets of teamwork, sportsmanship, and developing fundamentals. At the highest levels, however, coaches are tasked with leading a team to success, oftentimes being some sort of national or professional championship. As the participants gain experience and their skill-sets become more refined, the roles of the coach change. In the beginning, we are teaching new fundamentals and skills, trying to stoke a passion for a sport in a young, impressionable mind. At the highest levels, the coach must rely on their experience and expertise to put their team and players in a position to be successful.
A coach at the college or professional level must constantly be surveying what is happening, and anticipating what will happen next based on their experience. In the professional world, the best project managers are the ones who lead each day in the same way that the collegiate and professional athletic coaches do. We have a team with diverse backgrounds, skill sets, experiences, and motivations, all working towards the same goal. Removing obstacles, anticipating changes, understanding who is on your team and what they are capable of, and applying a firm, yet flexible management approach to set the entire project up for success. At CheckPoint Consulting we have developed a methodology to allow our PM’s to do just that, based on our decades of experience and success.
