I am working as a coordinator for two teams situated in different time zones. I do everything that is related to coordination (arrange meetings, doing scrum updates across teams, adding clarification etc).
But I am very interested to know what additional responsibilities I could take up as project coordinator, that benefit both the teams, but benefit more the team I am representing (say Team A), other than the usual coordination work.
- I do not have any reportees to me, there are PMs who takes care of people/project management for Team A and Team B.
- I do not have any control over the project.
- I have a feeling that if I keep doing this for a year or more, my skill levels are going to be underutilized and may be of no value.
- I might be understating my role, as it sometimes involve a complex of coordination of work for 12 people at site B and 6 people at Site A (where I am located representing Team B) and spend a lot of time to carefully read and assimilate and reply to emails.
- But I do get spurts of 2-8 hours a week to do something else for the project.
