The sheer nature of project management requires a great deal of flexibility. Project leaders who are inflexible simply won't be able to effectively deliver. The more a project leader can adapt and remain flexible the greater chance they have of improving their level of customer service -- and make no mistake, project management is most definitely a high-level, high-visibility customer service field. Leaders need to remain flexible in the areas shown.
Remember, change is truly the one constant in project management, and flexibility will remain a necessity.
- The ability to adapt to business requirement changes.
- The ability to remain open-minded when it comes to ideas and innovation.
- Shifting schedules, these will often change as project parameters shift.
