Projects present challenges to the Project Manager, not just in their planning and operation, but also in terms of effective leadership and management of all interested parties. There are key areas which need to be considered when evaluating the success of a project. These can involve various perspectives depending on experience, knowledge, cultural values, and self interest. Managing to initiate a project and maintain progress to completion can be difficult for the Project Manager.
For this assessment you are to choose a past project where it is no more than 3 years since project closure. You are to write a critical evaluation in a structured formal report in which you should consider the following areas.
· Key issues in managing people in projects including teamwork and communication.
· Issues of leadership and management of change within project management
· The impact of organisational structure and cultures in your chosen project.
Consider how the Project Manager attempted to address these areas in your chosen project.
