Within the last decade, research has been conducted to explore the leadership profiles of project managers, as well as to examine the body of evidence presented in order to discern statistical significance between the leadership of project managers and success in their projects. Findings have indicated that various traits falling under the umbrella of leadership are associated with successful project managers. Relevant research also has shown that there is a strong correlation between the leadership skills of project managers and the success of their projects. Both findings have been cross-referenced with individual leadership styles of project managers.
