Ego’s within a project

What is an ego?

Ego-Driven Project Management

  • The PM will be motivated to deliver the project outcome which is good thing as this is why the project has been established in the first place.
  • With this motivation it is likely that the PM is at ‘arms-length’ from the detail which leads to freedom/empowerment of project team to deliver.
  • The PM is focussed at delivery even ‘at all costs’.
  • Due to arms-length the PM less inclined to understand project status and is more inclined to report “all rosy” if communication exists at all.
  • A clear delivery focussed mission statement that the whole team has bought into.
  • Innovation within the project is set to flourish.
  • Cohesion within the team and the wider organisation.
  • Relationship and reputation building.
  • No project management control of the project leads to cost and programme overruns.
  • No communications with stakeholders.
  • Conflict throughout the project team and organisation.
