The Importance of Strong Project Leadership


Leading an important and highly visible project is as exciting as it is risky.

With more boards and executives depending upon project teams to execute their most pressing strategies, project leaders need to step up their game. Research shows that up to 75% of projects fail to meet stakeholder expectations.

In essence, an effective project leader enables teams to beat the odds by increasing the consistency of deliverables, better managing expectations of key stakeholders, more frequently being within budget, intelligently managing risk, and significantly improving communication, professional development, and employee engagement.

It is a lot to ask.

As a project leader, your success is dependent upon the success of others. So it is your job to create the environment required for everyone (including your customers) to succeed.
