BLUF: What's the best way to transition from project management to management?
I've been managing IT projects for eight years and would like to transition to management. Over the past three years I've been managing software development and implementation projects at a small software company. The org chart is flat and there's no room for growth.
I think my next move is to join a larger organization that has the growth potential. I'm thinking iI would need to move laterally before climbing up the corporate ladder. Are there alternatives? How have fellow MTers made the transition?
Thanks in advance,
