How to Manage Subject Matter Experts When You Aren’t One - Business 2 Community

How to Manage Subject Matter Experts When You Aren’t One - Business 2 Community | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

When I get asked what is the secret to being a good manager I answer: don't be afraid to hire subject matter experts, give them the support they need to be successful and then trust them to do their job. So many managers don't understand that their job is to make their team successful.

 

Do you need to know enough about the subject to discuss it intelligently? Yes. Do you need to tell an interactive designer what images to use? No. If they aren't good enough to pick effective images you have hired the wrong person. Give team members feedback, relay comments and questions from stakeholders and community members, but don't do their job for them. That path leads team members withdrawing and negativity. Work with your team and don't be afraid to learn from them. You'll get more respect for leading a collaborative team and the team will much more successful if members feel they have the freedom to be creative, than you will get for dictating which image to use and rewriting the Content Writer's copy.

 

Such a simple lesson.

 

So few managers understand, believe and practice this.

TechWell | Rethinking Typical Project Management Approaches

TechWell | Rethinking Typical Project Management Approaches | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
"Don't work on projects, work on products!" is a cry often heard in the agile community. But if you have a team pulled together to support an ongoing product, it doesn't make sense to use typical project management techniques.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

There are two sentences here that strike a chord for me: "Projets aren't the problem - organizational structures built around a project mentality are.." and "bring the work to the team instead of the naming people "resources" and bringing them to the work," only to disband them.
