    Excellent video, Mike! Project managers need to develop and maintain an understanding of their organization’s structure, business, and strategy, as well as the environment in which it operates. From financial statements to product mix and markets, the best project managers learn enough to become trusted advisors to their sponsors, critical stakeholders, and senior decision makers.
