On time. Under budget. Within scope. This is the foundation for success of every project manager. But what about client satisfaction? Today's project managers need to have the ability to wear multiple hats at varying times throughout a project for the project to truly be successful. In my earlier days of project management, I recall stressing over every dollar of the budget and having my RAID log updated with every single action, decision that was made.

One of the most thought provoking tasks I execute for clients is determining how mature the technology they have deployed is. I understand that sentence is grammatically incorrect; it is intentional. That is how it is most often phrased by clients. When you see the question ‘How mature is your technology?’ you immediately understand there is something missing; matured compared to what standard.
