What Makes a Good Digital Project Manager?

In the Agency world, finding good Digital Project Managers isn’t always easy. During my time at Creative Jar (and at previous agencies) I’ve met and interviewed quite a few candidates for Project Management positions. To have a successful Project Management team it relies on having the right kind of people so I’ve often found myself asking the question: ‘what makes a good Digital Project Manager?’

Here are some thoughts about the characteristics I’ve found really come in useful:

1. Ability to prioritise

2. Keeping calm and focused

3. Being able to let go

4. Don’t assume too much

5. Being approachable

6. Have a passion for Digital
