The PMI Talent Triangle
Andrea Linton

I can safely say I’m not alone in thinking that effective project managers (PMs) need good leadership skills, not just technical expertise. I also believe that good managers and leaders don’t need to be technical gurus to successfully manage technical projects or projects that are not necessarily part of their subject matter expertise.
