As Project Managers become more senior, what are the typical career paths (beyond just taking on larger and more complex projects)?

2 Answers 2

  • Portfolio management
  • Strategic decision making positions
  • Leaders of innovation initiatives and new growth opportunities

All the way up to COO

As your experience with larger/higher-budget/more-complex projects grows, you'll eventually be in a position to manage projects which directly affect the business in all areas, e.g. rolling out company-wide strategic initiatives. With enough experience in this, there's no reason you couldn't be invited to help decide on the initiatives in the first place.
