INTRODUCTION

Just as the Business world is experiencing rapid change in various industries, the role and character of the Project Manager is equally in a period of transition. Over the next 10 years the Project Manager will evolve into someone much broader with more and new responsibilities than the traditional Project Manager of today. The Project Manager will certainly continue to oversee and direct investment projects in various industries but also evolve into a leader with well-developed communications and listening skills that create and nurture the all-important relationships and motivates, engages and develops others. The outcome of project management research indicates that the Project Manager of the future will interface with twice as many stakeholders than the Project Manager does today and consequently will require vastly improved leadership, people and thinking skills.
