Often the difference between the project that succeeds and the project that fails is the leadership of the project manager. Each project management team is a group of individuals who needs motivation and coordination. Planning is vital, but the ability to adapt to changes and work with people to overcome challenges is just as necessary. A project manager must master the skills that are necessary to be successful in this environment. The unique and temporary nature of projects creates a work environment that mandates a different management approach from that used by an operations manager. Qualities of a project manager are categorized into the three areas:
1. Interpersonal skills. These skills include providing direction, communicating, assisting with problem solving, and dealing effectively with people without having authority.
2. Technical expertise. Technical knowledge gives the project manager the creditability to provide leadership on a technically based project, the ability to understand important aspects of the project, and the ability to communicate in the language of the technicians.
3.Project Management Skills. These skills include planning, organizing, and /managing/ overseeing/coordinating the work.
