Project management requires efforts and it is certainly not an easy job. It involves several steps; from the initiation, planning, executing, and controlling to the closing of a project. The most challenging part is that the project is delegated to a team with specific goals to achieve over a defined timeline for a determined budget. A successful and effective project manager is one who can keep projects and the team on track. This normally takes more than just technical know-how.

Thus, it is vital for the project manager to recognize their team core competency and work towards enhancing it. Placing the right team member with the appropriate competency, not only helps to deliver the project but it will improve the team dynamics in delivering future projects.
