How much technical training does a project manager need?

This article presents the view that the leadership skills of a project manager are more important than their specialized technical knowledge.

Project managers should know the virtue of admitting they don't have all the answers, but try to be knowledgeable about sources of information and develop their general leadership and strategic skills.
