ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The present quantitative correlational research study explored relationships between Emotional Intelligence (EI) competencies, such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management, and project management outcomes: scope creep, in-budget project cost, and project timeliness. The study was conducted within the context of high technology projects of Hispanic professionals in the United States, as the research study environment. The purpose of the research study was to identify the relationships between the four EI predictor variables and the three project outcomes criterion variables, measuring their strength and direction. Statistical tests were conducted to determine if any of the relationships could support the notion of applying EI could improve the execution of high tech projects by using EI skills to help predict project outcomes. The sample population consisted of 88 Hispanic participants responding to an online survey instrument. Statistical correlational analysis of the collected data indicated the existence of some positive relationships between the identified EI skills and project outcomes existed. The research study conclusions should help project leaders understand the benefits of EI in the workplace from the perspective of the Hispanic population and the positive generalization of the study results to other ethnic groups.
