It is a great bonus if they are, but the success of the project hinges on the project manager’s ability to effectively organize all aspects of the project and the project schedule. Without good organization, you will not be able to schedule effectively for you or for your project team(s).

Additionally, you do not need to be able to install a network to be able to manage network engineers, but you need to understand enough about the technology that your teams are using to be able to understand what your team is working on.
