Can do: This is obvious, but how can you acquire these soft skills? Are soft skills can be learnt at all? “Dr. Christian Eisenschink: ultimately helps here just learning by doing”. The project manager must make first aware that his project will be not 100% according to plan. When the surprise comes, he should obtain his serenity. This is like a marathon runner who knows from experience and from his training that he will have a period of weakness such as 30 km: he knows, that this phase and must be not troubled then.

Rather, he can prepare and eat before e.g. a power bar, to be then prepared. The project manager must understand his craft and access the different instruments which provided him, at the entrance of the unpredictable. Through experience and the frequency of cases where you had to improvise, to become certified and can act accordingly do better. Can do: what significance then accordingly have the soft areas of project management? Dr. Christian Eisenschink: Basically, I think that the so-called soft factors comprise 80% of the success of the project. The explanation lies in the very high complexity of the projects.

To be, this complexity is missing a suitable analytical tool. Accordingly, this gap of the soft factors must be closed. That is reversed: If there were such analytical tool, the importance of soft factors would take off. Intuition is often a substitute for lack of methods and instruments. “A fundamental problem is that the scientific theory linear thinking, as well as a linear progression as the normal” takes. But this is not the case, but the opposite: the abnormal and the chaotic much, the normally are much more common on it, is the linear the exception. Can do: You are the head of the regional group of Regensburg of the GPM for 9 years and have seen many trends in project management come and go again.
