Study: Correlation Between Effective Leadership and Successful Project Results
Project management is an increasingly popular field for both workers and researchers.
Today’s projects are becoming more complex in increasingly volatile environments and require more leadership than before. Most of what we tend to know about the leadership qualities of “good” project managers come from the ability to check off boxes on important skills and competencies lists. The problem with these lists is that they are static and assume all projects involve the same work and can be managed with the same skills and competencies.
This study from the Project Management Institute found that projects have differing needs and characteristics, and a combination of skills and competencies may be most important for success. The study also showed that the most valued skills and competencies change significantly based on the scope and characteristics of the project. Based on these results, project managers must be flexible and have the right combination of leadership, communication, planning, and experience to be successful.
