Factors Affecting Project Management in the Public Sector

Abstract

Abiding by the principles and rules of project management in the public administration environment provides project managers with a range of pitfalls that can influence the success of the project. This fact has been proved by a number of analysed projects. The managers themselves claim that the most challenging problem from the perspective of project management and assessment of the project success is the field of leadership (the leading of the project team by a project manager). The authors of this article have therefore identified the most important factors for assessing the success of the project management of a team by a manager at various stages of the lifecycle of a project. Furthermore, both the direct and indirect impact of not respecting these factors in achieving the project objectives and in creation of job satisfaction within the project team have been presented in compliance with the data analysis of completed projects in the public sector and the authors’ own experience in dealing with projects in the public sector. The article offers approaches to mitigate some negative aspects regarding the principles and rules of project management according to recognized international standards. Although the article is primarily intended for project managers in the public administration environment, it can also provide some inspiration for fresh approaches to the field of leadership for project managers in the private sector. This article was written as a part of the project Development of Social Skills of a Soldier (LEADER_DZRO_K104), funded by institutional support, which is intended for the development of research organizations in the Ministry of Defence (DZRO K-104) funded from.

Abstract

The performance of commanding roles in non-standard situations and cooperation within NATO troops showed the need for the development of leadership skills among the commanders of the Army of the Czech Republic at all levels of command. The competence to lead people hasn't been yet systematically developed and explored in the Czech Army.

The aim of this article is to inform about the initial approach to the concept of competence to lead people in the Czech Army, to generate the structure of given competence and a description of its sub-skills for the position of team and platoon from the available theoretical sources. To compare the theoretical model with the results of the research among selected military professionals, which will permit to more accurately identify, for the military experience, necessary elements of competence. The results will be usable for following internal differentiation of the researched competence for other levels of command. This article was written as a part of the project Development of social competencies of the military leader.
