Fun Facts and Truths for Project Managers #24

Wrike, developers of a highly flexible project management tool, uses a meme to bust myths about project management. They share the following stats:

Myth 1 – Remote collaboration is unproductive.
In fact, remote work makes happy employees and increases performance by 13%.

Myth 2 – Project management certification is a must.
In fact, even at IBM, only 56% of project management specialists hold a certificate.

Myth 3 – Project management is pure paperwork.
In fact, a project manager spends 90% of their time communicating.

Myth 4 – Frequent meetings are necessary to keep everyone in the loop.
In fact, 47% of workers called meetings the #1 time-waster at the office.

Myth 5 – Project failures are fatal.
In fact, if failures are discovered in a timely manner and within the right culture, they may be the link to future successes.

Execution leadership certainly benefits from great work management software tools. But execution leadership without leadership skills (another type of toolset) makes it tough going for everyone.
