200+ Project Management Power Verbs

        posted by , April 14, 2013

Nothing does more for your career than an effective vocabulary.

The right words enhance your communications, documents and presentations. They're also critical for your performance objectives and your resume.

If you're like me, you're tired of using the same verbs over and over again to describe project management actions. Verbs such as manage, plan, estimate, integrate, schedule and resolve are so useful in project management contexts that it's easy to fall back on them. For example, practically every project management action can be called "manage".

It's a good habit to use the most specific word available to describe your actions. The following verbs apply to various project management scenarios.
