The Human Element of Project Management
Gillard, Sharlett
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v10 n3 p185-188 2017
Much research and dialogue have been published about project management. Studies have been conducted regarding the impact of size, member location, gender composition, cross-functional structure, stakeholder influence, confidence issues, technology usage, management style, generational differences, technical expertise vs. people skills, and a myriad of other topics. Writings regarding the human factors, the "soft" skills, have typically focused on the "what is" and "why" elements of communication and conduct appropriate to project management, often leaving the "how to" in subjection or missing. This article provides additional practical applications to improve project management success.
