Dual Project Managers: Dream Team Or Two-Headed Monster?
Forrester's AD&D Community Weighs In On Projects With Multiple Project Managers
July 6, 2011
Why Read This Report
Over the past few months, we reached out to The Forrester Community For Application Development & Delivery Professionals to find out if a project can succeed with more than one project manager (PM). We wanted to hear how community members' personal experiences helped them identify critical success factors and pitfalls in a multi-PM environment — and they spoke loud and clear. We learned that a multi-PM model can be successful but that it is the people behind the model that drive project success. To boost success in a multi-PM environment, the community encourages you to explore the project's context, put people first, and clearly define roles. Effective collaboration between multiple project managers is crucial and can make or break a project.
