Project management is an important part of any company, regardless of the type, source or outcome. There's a lot to do, and time is always limited. Any project is a short-term action that has a timeframe and seldom lasts for longer than two years. It stands to reason that project managers must make the most of what have to work with. If you look at it in terms of sports, the role of a project manager is very much like that of a soccer coach. They are given a team to shape into an effective force with rules to follow and limited resources. Everyone would like a dream team, but the best coach is one who can make champions.
The skills required of a successful project manager come from every discipline. From accounting to strategic planning, supervision, and personnel administration, some skills are more basic while others are more technical. The combination of these skill sets is ultimately what can propel a project toward success. From effective communication, problem solving, strong leadership and negotiation there are number of ways these such skills will aid in successful project management.
