As a project manager, it is your job to oversee the creation and execution of company projects and ensure that all team members stay on track to meet deadlines. Expect interview questions that will assess your ability to lead a group and communicate effectively to members with different roles and varying concerns. As the scope, schedule, and cost of a project can change frequently, the interviewer may ask you to role-play a few scenarios in which a project deadline changes or several group members leave the company.
How do you manage people resisting change yet the leadership is requesting output that requires something difference.
Assess the situation. Present the facts, with the benefits and risks of the suggested actions or inactions. Seek leadership support and escalate if necessary or let the status quo continue with the risks identified and documented.
The management approach ideally would depend on the characteristics of the recalcitrant individuals.
