Communication is key! The project manager must communicate project status to teams, internal and external, via a variety of methods: paper, slack, email, phone, message in bottle. If we can be communicating better the project manager is expected to show us how!

Speak BGP, Python, Linux, or network mumbo jumbo? Excellent! We have technical environment ? be prepared to learn how the internet really works. The project manager will know how our products works and how current tasks fit into the larger picture, technically and strategically.

Estimate much? Did we miss a deadline? Are we too distracted? The project manager will know exactly where we were, are, and plan to go.
