You must now continually improve your existing skills in project management, communication, understanding human nature, and working across organizational lines. You will have new challenges the more you lead successful projects. You will need to take a deeper dive into current project management standards and learn to use more sophisticated tools. All of this can be overwhelming on top of your many responsibilities and priorities. You will develop a plan to integrate new skills and tools systematically and use references for your own continuous improvement.
