Topic: `Mukta Samwaad' on Leadership and Project Management


There should be no doubt in anyone's mind that accepting a position as a project manager also means accepting the responsibilities of a leader. There are expectations associated with the position, and the person accepting the assignment must be aware of the demands at the personal as well as professional level. Of course, the type of project, the company, the organizational structure and other factors impact the role of the project manager, but there will always be some element of leadership in the position.

Some of the qualities of a Project Manager such as minding the scope, schedule, and budget of a project may sound quiet and peaceful, even mundane. Being in an individual contributor role or managing team members to someone else's direction is tranquil in comparison to a leader's responsibilities. One must remember, though, that there are two paths in project management—successfully managing the most difficult  type of projects as a leader, or following a cookbook project management style as a coordinator. The demand will increase for the former, while the latter will be commoditized and relegated to any resource, remote or local. To advance the project management discipline, leadership qualities are essential.

Taking this point further, the following themes will be discussed in the upcoming Muktasamwad- The panel members will share their experiences as a Project Manager/Leader on a specific project, their leadership challenges as the Project Manager and their learning's. The session will be concluded with an open house.
