More than a number?
Many professions have often debated the association between age and competence, and the project world is not any different. This article discusses whether age and competence are mutually exclusive when it comes to the abilities of a project professional. In doing so, it features two project professionals discussing whether the age of a project professional matters noting that people make assumptions about colleagues and managers based on their age. It then debates whether older project managers are more competent than younger project managers are, citing that there are many capable, competent young project managers, and many older ones, too. It then explores if age and experience are the same, suggesting that many years of experience do not equal good experience.
