EXECUTIVE SUMMARY What makes an effective Project Manager? Many companies do not realize that effective project managers need more than a project management toolbox filled with the latest and greatest flowcharts and histograms. While it is true that technical tools and skills are important, people skills and cultural mores also play a significant role in the career of the effective project manager. This paper explores the various types of skills needed by project managers over various levels of interaction: individuals, teams, and organizations. By outlining key components of successful project management, individual PMs will be able to gauge which areas they can improve to increase the effectiveness of their management approach.
