PM/CM Leadership Conflict or Sinergy?
Michele D Urzo, Management Consultant, Italy, Member
I totally agree that the Leadership factor is worth to be included in the equation.
Indeed, Leadership is within the Project while Vision is above it, therefore, the 2 terms must be kept distinct.
However, in my opinion PM activity (i.e. responsibility to deliver on time, on budget, fulfilling all the specifications) and CM activity (i.e. overcoming resistance and facilitating adoption) are synergic and not conflicting (CML*PML).
Following the proposed formula L=(CML/PML), with a lesser PM Leadership we should obtain better results... This is not confirmed by my experience.
