Project management, it's easy peasy. What are your thoughts?

Project management is important, but sometimes it can feel like a complex and thankless task. But if you understand how to do it, you can.

According to a survey of organisations by the Project Management Institute, organisations that undervalue project management indicate that on average 50% of their projects fail. That’s significant – it can mean unhappy people, lost income and future work, and poor client or funder relationships.

Having been involved in project management for more years than I can count, the value of a good project manager and a well-managed project is one that occupies much of my time and thought. How can the job be done better?  

What do you think?

It would be great to hear your opinion on:

·       What characterises good or poor project management?

·       The must have skills and competencies of a good project manager.

·       The best mechanisms for offering project management training.

The findings of the survey will be shared and used to guide the development of a mentoring or modular training programme for project managers.
