Project managers need a new approach to recruiting top teams
Attracting and recruiting the best talent is one of the most challenging aspects of any major project or transformation programme. As any head of project management, chief technology officer or head of innovation will tell you, getting the best project managers in the right roles and tech stars on board is slow, time consuming and often hit-and-miss.
From paying large fees to recruitment agents to the huge loss of time reviewing CVs, traditional recruitment processes hit both time and budgets of heads of project management. Project managers are, of course, not unique when it comes to slow and outdated recruitment processes. They can, however, have a bigger impact on our industry where meeting short-term goals is paramount and getting the right skills in place as quickly and efficiently as possible can make a huge difference to the success of the project.
So what’s the solution?
