Are Project Managers Born or Made?
Ellis, Manager, United Kingdom

It is worth considering whether project managers are born or made.
If they are born, there is an assumption that core elements of the desirable traits mentioned in the 4C's of an Ideal Project Manager are inherent in the nature of the individual.
This may be the case for a lucky few but, in my experience, the best chance for success in developing project managers is to mould them by virtue of a combination of training, mentorship and experience.
That is where the competency element comes in to play. If the manager is given the tools to succeed and is exposed to lessons learned from previous projects then that, combined with the inherent personality should give you the greatest opportunity for becoming a successful and competent project manager.... Register
