The Communication Skills of a Project Manager

Yes, having good communication skills is one of the key abilities of a project manager. However, this fact is frequently overlooked when choosing the ideal candidate for that position. Moreover, it is not emphasized as much as it should in most project management training programs. Thus, many times we find project managers with excellent management and technical skills but which are really not-that-good communicators.

Why is it so important?

First of all, because a good leader should be a great communicator in order to lead and motivate his or her team, as we have discussed before. This is something that not only applies to the members of the team but to all the stakeholders of the project. A project manager has to be aware that all of them have different profiles and interests, and that it requires from him or her a great ability to adapt the message to each one.

How To Measure The Project Return

When you talk about the return of a project, your mind immediately thinks of the economic benefit to be obtained. But return is a broad concept that, depending on the type of project, may include more qualitative and intangible aspects, such as the acquired knowledge, the achieved operational improvements or even the “social return”, derived from those benefits that a project can bring to the environment where it is developed. For instance, that can be especially relevant in solidarity projects like those developed by NGOs within their social function.

However, no doubt that, in many projects, there is an essential explicit goal to achieve profitability. The clearest example that we can find is one in which a project is developed based on a price. This price can be either previously agreed with a client or established as the budget of the project by the organization that is undertaking it.
