What’s the secret to project management success?
Surely it is about having a solid understanding of what drives the business, don’t you think? Or is it more important to master interpersonal skills – that instinctive ability to communicate, motivate and lead?

The answer is not one or the other. It’s all three. Undeniably, you need both the right skills and tools, as well as years of experience, to be able to instinctively manage a project.
