When working on projects, there are often Project Managers who have transitioned from technical roles.
For better or worse, these project managers often take the lead in defining the technical deliverables often at the risk of alienating the technical teams, missing dependencies, constraints, etc that define technical achievements, etc.
Sometimes a project manager comes along who has had basic exposure to technical solutions and attempts to define technical milestones.
Rather than then tell them that it isn't their place to define these (since it can result is unintended results e.g. conflicts, challenging egos, etc), what would be an appropriate approach or sets of approaches?
