The project manager - administrative skills
This tutorial briefly discusses a number of fundamental administrative skills that project managers would do well to develop. These skills include effective communication, an understanding of organizational policies and procedures, and the ability to attract and keep good people. Effective project managers learn to delegate effectively, and because they know that changes are always costly, they learn to minimize changes, to negotiate for resources, and to organize multifunctional programs. Since measurement is the prerequisite for control, it is necessary that project managers measure the right things without overlooking any critical variables and learn to communicate thoroughly with their bosses and clients.
