Paper Summary: The project manager must navigate a myriad of social processes and contexts concurrently with the application of technical skills. The experience of making context appropriate judgements is internal to the project manager, albeit involving essential interactions with others. We seek to make that lived experience of the project manager directly accessible. Access is often limited because of a lack of an appropriate vocabulary to articulate the missing sociological dimension.. We help project managers find their voice through autoethnography and draw attention to seven key concepts articulated through the Chicago School of Sociology and the phenomenology of the Continental Philosophers.
