As we near the Project World & World Congress for Business Analysts event I have been very excited to learn more about perfecting my skills as a project manager. I have been consulting my support network about the people factor when working through a project. During a recent conversation I was reminded of one thing that seems like a no-brainer, but often is overlooked is selecting people to complete tasks. You want to select people based on their respective strengths instead of forcing them into a weakness. An example of this is assigning someone a communication plan when you know that they really don’t have a passion for speaking in front of groups.
