Leadership is important to the success of a project because leadership is essentially about motivating people. However, what may be characterized as “managership” is equally important because this is about getting things done. Can the two be reconciled? For this it is necessary to turn to a fundamental principle underpinning the concept of project management. Project management is a structured but flexible process for producing a new end result. Its success depends on the application of a two step sequence: First plan – then produce. This is the basis of every successful project life cycle.
To get a project started off right, the project manager must become a leader. However, the style of leadership does need to change as the project progresses through its life cycle. In this, project management is unique. Whilst a manager may develop his or her “team” once, the project leader must be conscious of the “Project Team Development Cycle” for every project and throughout the project life cycle.
