Managing People and Teams

As a Project Manager you will eventually come across the question in interviews that relate to your specific management of both individuals and teams. The question that you may face may be "During a project that you have worked on recently were you responsible for managing people or teams what were the challenges that you faced and how did you manage them?"

The goal of this question is for the applicant to demonstrate a result orientated set of behavior. As the Project Manager job is all about setting and reaching goals you must demonstrate your ability to deliver the goods to achieve the set goals. Resolving problems shows both good interpersonal communication but also good leadership which is crucial for being a good Project Manager. Describing to the interviewer how you managed the project in coordination with other teams and tackled and overcame the issues that you face will allow the interviewer to get a good idea of what you would be like working for their organization.
