    Was just asked to join the core team for a new $100 million install for the next four or so years. Utterly terrifying to be responsible for $20-30M. Largest project so far was in the range of $8M on a $25M project, but this is a different class of project altogether. Only a handful of these in the corp at any time considering it's about 5% of our entire capital spend in a year (obviously spread out over four years, so in the range of 1%/yr).


    Echo Kepler's comments. You won't know until you try. WIsh you the best of luck in getting a new job and hope it works out. If it doesn't, there's a **** ton of jobs out there.
    Exactly. Plus, at the end of the day it's commerce. It means nothing. It's not a kid or a spouse or your college hockey team. It's just vapor.

      I, too, am looking around (internally). Since my hospital is being absorbed by a larger system, our IT infrastructure is being consolidated. In the short/medium term, there will be no reductions (my god we're bare bones staffed anyway) and in fact I've applied for four of the new manager-level positions opening up in my new service line. I don't have particularly high hopes to get one, but interviewing for a position you're qualified for is never bad.

      What does that have to do with project management? Well, these new roles would be about half personnel management and half project management. I do a ton of project management now, so I figured that wouldn't be a bad fit. My current job (technically a team lead position) will be sort of reduced in scope to more of a "lead analyst" position, which is good and bad. Good because that is what it should be, and what it is at every single similarly-sized organization in the country and it would come with no salary change (I'm already towards the lower end of my scale). But bad because I kind of like the PM work and I like punching above my weight class. We'll see I suppose.
      I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

        Any updates on this one? Do you manage it well?
        We started to use microsoft 365 business voice sms recently for the different projects and i can see that we can deal with many issues much faster and more successfully than in the past. Maybe will be helpful for you too.
