|High Level: Input and Output Process|
Completing my Masters in Applied Information Technology, I was introduced into the world of Project Management. Thinking to myself about this profession, it is very similar to teaching just in a different environment, different terminology, and dealing with money. However, they Teaching and Project Managers (PM) are focusing on the same processes: What you put into the classroom (project) your output should be modified in some form or fashion.
A Teacher teaches a student and the Student in turn teaches another or utilizes what was taught to apply it to other aspects in life.
A Project Manager takes the Business requirements (usually documented) and mold it into a unique item and/or service that the business wants.
Understanding this concept, I have gravitated toward this profession.
