Project management alone will not do the trick
Good and effective project management is a critical factor of project success. Project Management helps set a frame, providing structure and order to potential chaos. Without this structure a project leads to nowhere; it will most likely fail, if it ever takes off.
If results are to be generated out of seeming chaos we have to build a structure that enables creativity, innovation, and results. Project management provides excellent tools to build this structure. They are important and necessary for project success. But are they sufficient? We think that that unless capacitated in the right direction, they remain ineffective. Project management alone will not do the trick. What it takes is a set of skills for effective project management. These skills are aimed towards –
- Building a vision
- Nurturing collaboration
- Promoting performance
- Cultivating learning
- Ensuring results
