The People Side of Project Management

Good project leaders know how to harness the energy and capabilities of a project team.  Project management isn’t just about delivering on time, scope, budget and quality. It’s about developing people – teams and individuals.

The leadership skills needed by project teams are different from those required of organisational leaders. For project teams, factors such as changing team members, an unclear framework or project context, and budget adjustments can make a larger and more rapid impact on efficiency and performance than when those same changes occur at the organisational level. Project teams most often cite examples of good leadership as being able to inspire others, and secure the confidence and support of stakeholders.

Learn the essential people skills that can make the difference between success and failure on a project – regardless of culture and geographic locale.
