Project Leadership - You Cannot Manage a Project to Success 


Topic                     :  Project Leadership - You Cannot Manage a Project to Success 


Presentation Description

You cannot manage a project to success; you must lead a project to success.  Over the past 40 years, as project management tools and methodologies have evolved into a prescriptive “discipline,” we have become overly focused on project administration, training and certifying project managers in their ability to report on the easily quantifiable metrics of schedule and cost.  This presentation describes the critical responsibilities of the project manager in leading the team through vision, motivation, communication, action, focus and tenacity, i.e., leadership. The key question is: how do you acquire/develop project leaders
