The old rule of project management: there’s always an unexpected thing to happen. Being a project manager you should expect the unexpected and try to prepare yourself as much as possible.
Actually, well-prepared project manager has not only a plan B for possible failures, she also has an ability to craft a plan B on the fly when something uncommon or unexpected happens. Risk management is all about dealing with issues you can predict and that’s bread and butter of every project manager out there I hope. However some things you can never predict.
That’s the thing which usually differentiates good project managers from great project managers. Ability to expect the unexpected and ability to deal with the situation.
And how you deal with situations you can’t predict?
