All to often especially among young project managers, the need to concentrate their effort and time is in the technical area(s) that their career developed from or to try and spend all their time in all of the technical areas of their project. When they complete their project it may be successful but was it as successful as it could have been? Leadership and the inter-personal relationships that a project manager has with their superiors, staff, clients, contractors, suppliers, and governing authorities have become as important a function if not more so than the technical components of their responsibilities.
