You may or may not be surprised to hear that there is an increasing number of Project Managers found on Twitter. Like most people, I was skeptical of the value Twitter would bring to my professional network. Over the last 18 months, I’ve meet and networked with stellar PMs around the world.
To encourage and celebrate new additions to the Project Manager Twitter community, I thought conducting a search for the Top 10 Up and Coming PMs on Twitter would be appropriate.
Over the last few months, my team and I have done an extensive search and applied a rigorous selection process to select who would and would not make the list. I hope you agree with me that these folks are ones to watch out for this year.
