Qualities of a Good Project Leader

As was noted earlier, project leaders are typically drawn from the scientific staff in Discovery. In Development this may also occur but more attention tends to be paid in Development towards the level of training and professionalism in project leaders especially with respect to project tracking and reporting, which tends to be more formal in Development.

We have created a white paper, “Qualities of a Good Project Leader” which we would be happy to share with you. This information can also be shared with your organization via webinar.
