Oil And Gas Organizations In Africa Shouldn't Just Worry About The Project Team Gap—They Should Help Fill It
I've noticed that most project managers in West Africa are selected based on their technical skills. But a project manager must have excellent leadership skills to be successful. These include communication, delegation, negotiation and the ability to motivate teams. But in my experience, most project managers fall short in these areas. If organizations prioritized leadership skills above technical skills when selecting project managers, which they should, I believe we'd see skill sets evolve more quickly.
