Illustration 1 shows the Essential Traits or attributes that were predictive of success in Project Management Template. These traits would be different for other templates and profiles. To explain a bit:
Partial studies that followed have confirmed that people who score well in these attributes (and not in other areas) are more likely to be successful project managers. Desirable traits for project managers There was then a second group of attributes called Desirable Traits. These are the areas where a person’s score would be affected. Another way to put it, it wasn’t important that they scored high in these traits. It was only that they DIDN’T score low or negatively, otherwise it would lower or decrease their chances of being successful as project managers.
As I mentioned above, scoring high (towards the right) is not important. However, if they score to the left, it will lower their overall suitability (see Illustration 4). This part of my research was very interesting because I had expected that Organized and Planning, Handling Conflict, Managing stress, and Handling Conflict would be the top-ranked predictors. Undesirable traits of project managers This means that if a person scores to the left on any one of these, it is unlikely that they will succeed as project managers. ?.
It is unlikely that a person will be a successful project manager if they score even moderately to strong to their left. These traits are obvious and would be unacceptable for anyone in a management role. However, the primary impact would not be to lower the overall score. Overall Project Manager Behavioral Impact
Illustration 4 shows the total score. This score includes all the positives from Essential Traits less the negatives from Desirable and Negative traits to give an overall score. This profile has been validated twice since its creation, by large telecommunications companies from SE Asia. One is a system installation contractor and equipment manufacturer, while the other is a major provider of telecommunications services. The results of the pilot research are not available due to Non Disclosure Agreements (NDA). However, suffice it to say that preliminary evidence supports its validity. This has been confirmed with 28 people.
