Discuss the following statement with reference to a project, assignment or other initiative you have been involved with: “While project management is an activity undertaken with others, the projects themselves involve these other people doing—or not doing—just what is needed. This happens in an environment where the project manager has far less authority than responsibility, and it is this limitation of authority that characterises the project manager’s role and propels the most successful project managers to demonstrate leadership.” Portfolio Entry 3 With reference to the work you have done for Portfolio Entry 1 and 2, devise and run a technique that you can use to address the following questions: • •? Which leadership style suits you best? • •? How does this fit with your favoured team roles? • •? How will you bolster the parts (roles) that you’re not so good at? • •? How will you manage to delegate those parts that you love doing? • •? How will you ensure that the parts you favour least, still get the attention they need for good project leadership?
