I'm starting a new job on Monday. Part of that job will be managing a transition from internal applications to hosted applications. I have almost no actual details.
I've spent my career to date as a line employee; one of the people who relies on the project manager to keep things organized and rolling along. Now I'm going to /be/ the project manager.
I want to be a good or excellent project manager. What should I read, or know, or (most importantly) do to make everyone's lives easier? What do good project managers do?
