Evolved Competency: Book Published


In a recent poll I conducted of several hundred project managers, more than 70% of them said that processes, organizations, technologies and business products have become more complex over the last five years. This complexity has driven the need for project manager skills to evolve. In that same survey PMs said that their use of PM skills has decreased from 35% to 24% as they have had to use more soft and leadership skills. Also, only 14% of them said that PM Fundamentals were the skill set that they believed to be the most important for success. Yet almost every framework, book and recruiting focus is on PM fundamentals.
