Well written and thank you for posting.
I’ve been a die hard project manger for the past 25 years. I fully believe in collaboration and team building both are integral parts of my game plan.
I work in the commercial office vertical designing open plan workspaces. We work on ruthless deadlines just like developers do. At the end of the day, I’m the one who is responsible for the determined outcome so if I need to make that decision then i will. Case closed.
