  • Reflection and Discussion Forum Week 4Reflect on the assigned readings for the week. Identify what you thought was the most important concept(s), method(s), term(s), and/or any other thing that you felt was worthy of your understanding.

    Also, provide a graduate-level response to each of the following questions:

    1. The chapter stressed the idea that project management is a leader-intensive undertaking.  Discuss in what sense this statement is true.
    2. Discuss the concept of emotional intelligence as it relates to the duties of project managers.  Why are the five elements of emotional intelligence so critical to successful project management?
  • Activity 4Consider the profile examples on project leaders Sir John Armitt and Jim Watzin from the chapter. If you were to summarize the leadership keys to their success in running projects, what actions or characteristics would you identify as being critical? Why? What are the implications for you when you are given responsibility to run your own projects?
