Soft Skills
Soft Skills FAQ's
Soft Skills
Soft Skills
The delivery of success projects is based on teamwork. Being an effective project team member requires not only specialist skills but most importantly soft skills. Soft skills or people skills make up more than 80% of the skill set required to participate in motivated project teams that are empowered and deliver projects on time, within budget and meeting the quality stipulated.

Traditionally the bulk of project team training is based on attending a
variety of technical project training courses, but soft skills courses are
seldom attended. Project management research conducted by
PM Academy highlights project failure is caused mainly by people
related reasons and to a much lesser extent by technical reasons. It
stands to reason that investing in the soft skills of the project teams
will significantly increase project success.
