In recent years, project work has emerged as an often favoured alternative to the line system or routine work. Regardless of the industry, many companies rely on this efficient form of work and face the challenges of dynamic markets. Although project work can be a success factor, it is not uncommon to hear of projects that fail miserably. This is often due to misjudgement, miscalculation and mismanagement on the part of the project manager. Improving the professional skills of project managers is therefore absolutely necessary.

The 6 most important competences of project managers

While it makes sense for professional project management to improve the technical skills of project managers, a number of soft skills are ultimately crucial for the success of a project manager - and consequently for the project.

Communication skills

Anyone who manages a project must be able to communicate. As the central point of contact for management, the project team and the client, precise and flawless communication is essential to keep everyone involved up to date with the latest information. You should always formulate according to the target group. Team members must be able to understand what exactly their task is and need a contact person who has the necessary background knowledge as well as an overview of the entire project. Although oral communication plays a major role, written forms of communication should not be neglected. Communication channels such as the use of e-mails or certain tools must be mastered by the project manager, as well as by all other participants.


Project work is team work. Therefore, it is essential for a project manager to be able to work well with other people. After all, a job can only be completed successfully if all team members pull together.

Problem & conflict resolution

It is not uncommon in projects for unforeseen problems and disagreements to arise between individual participants that need to be managed. In this respect, it is essential to improve the professional skills of project managers and to prevent delays, high costs or even a failure of the project by dealing with problems and conflicts in the right way.

Organisation & Time Management

Planning is the be-all and end-all in project management. If you cannot coordinate and plan, your project will inevitably go to the wall. You can improve the professional skills of project managers simply by learning to organise yourself and your tasks well. With the right time management, prioritisation and delegation of tasks, you will be on your way to successful project completion.

Leadership skills

If you want to improve the professional skills of project managers, you should pay particular attention to their leadership skills. After all, project managers are both leaders and contact persons for various stakeholders. For a smooth project process, you should always keep the project goal in mind for all stakeholders and lead your project team clearly.

Agility & flexibility

In an ideal world, planned timings are met and a project is completed without delay. Realistically, however, this is rather an exceptional case. An important professional skill of project managers that you can improve is to constantly adapt and rethink the project plan.
