Q.4
Dr. Splient is a leader in the organization. He should not be involved in day-to-day
activities. He is the Chief Executive Officer of a major medical center; his role in the
organization is not one of a project manager but an organizational leader. We have not
identified whether he has skill set to be a project manager. Leadership is one of the
qualities of Project Manager but it is not the only requirement. A Project Manager is
more of a Techno-Manager.
