Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Only you know whether it’s right or wrong. You have to ask yourself if you’re interested in project management. Do you feel like you can do it well? Do you want to learn more and become the go-to guy for project management? Check out these specific views I have on <a href=”http://www.principlelogic.com/careers.html”>IT certifications and career goal setting</a>. Best of luck!

    The first question would be: Why do you want to move to project management (and abandon your 8 years of lotus experience) ? Becoming a good project manager usually takes some years of experience and requires many different skills (not necessarily technical). You have to like it in order to succeed (and of course you need to know what exactly it is, in order to know whether you like it).

    In my opinion it will waste your hard earned learning in Lotus Notes Administration as Project Management is entirely a different stream to start with.

    There's certainly no shame in going from technical hands-on work to higher-level project management work. If anything having a technical background will make you a better project manager. The IT world could certainly use more people with a technical background as they tend to make the best people to fill non-technical managerial and sales positions.
