Many projects fail and I feel that there are factors that influence the outcome of a successful project that fall outside that which is taught in the APM Book of Knowledge (BoK), training course and project management checklists. The ego of the Project Manager is just such a topic.

An ego exists in every project. It is essential that this is identified, recognised and dealt with accordingly eliminating the negative and utilising the positive behaviours that can result where ego is involved in the motivations of your project.
