Project Management Soft Skills

This presentation provides insight into the importance of soft (human) skills in project management success. It highlights the recent focus of the PMBOK® Guide on these soft skills versus the predominant emphasis on hard (technical) skills. We delve into multiple soft skills and the balance between hard and soft skills that a project manager should possess. PMBOK® acknowledges research that the top 2% of project managers as designated by their bosses and teammates distinguish themselves by demonstrating superior relationship and communication skills
