Project managers functioning within a matrix organizational structure and Championing large- scale initiatives are in a communication paradigm unparalleled by any other management position. Excellent interpersonal, or soft skills, are necessary requisites for success. Additionally, research is revealing that leading is preferable to managing a project team, and that the leadership style of the project manager directly impacts the outcome of the project.
