Projects are undertakings with specifc goals, a time-limit and budget constraints. Thus it is especially important to apply effective management methods. These methods range from planning tools, steering processes, monitoring progress to handling risks and problems.
The demands on the project managers' soft skills are also considerable - not least when acvting in virtual, international teams. The project manager's skills determine the effectiveness of co-operation with sponsors, departments and external suppliers or contractors. The ability to communicate well and to handle conflicts productively as well as the skills to present clearly, secure support for the project and let managers achieve their goals.
