Now I work as a QA in an IT company and I want to switch to PM in future. What steps should be taken?
Currently I am into CAPM and reading some forums.
- What is the path to reach my destination project coordinator -> Junior PM / Assistant PM -> PM - will this work?
- How long it would take to reach my goal?
- Tools I need to learn?
- Do I need a MBA degree?
- Bachelors of Engineering in Electronics.
- Masters of Engineering in Networking.
I can unequivocally state that I have Good Organizational, communication and managerial skills. (My boss calls me as a small boss) and I have a good time management skills I stick to the ETA 90%.
Note: Though I do QA, I don't think I do QA stuffs exactly!! I do work very independently with other departments as a specific work is assigned to me. I don't hold meeting now, but I follow up, ask ETAs on specific Task on other departments, take part in lot of meetings, work with higher officials of other departments since my work client sensitive.
Please advise whether my work related to my dream job.
Any advise is really appreciated.
