we have a small team of highly technical people and one of them is the project manager for the project. The person who is in PM role for this project is experienced and has previous project management experience also. So it felt 'natural' for him to be PM the project.
But, he is also a resource for the project.
Should this be the case? is it 'normal' ?
Clearly, that person staying off the critical path is key, but what are the possible problems/risks that we may not have thought of?
