Curiosity: The Catalyst for Project Management Success

By: Sienna Provvidenza

In the realm of project management, where every day brings new challenges and unexpected hurdles, the distinction between a good project manager and a great one often hinges on one critical trait: curiosity. 


In a recent Forbes Technology Council article, technology leaders were asked to share the characteristics that elevate a good project manager to a great one and why these characteristics are so meaningful. Amongst the panel of leaders, Patrick Emmons, CEO at DragonSpears, underscores the importance of a curious mindset.  

Emmons emphasizes, "In my experience, one crucial characteristic of a highly effective project manager is curiosity. A curious project manager continuously seeks new insights, solutions, and approaches, fostering innovation and adaptability, which are key to project success." As Emmons mentioned, curiosity is not just about scratching the surface; it is about delving deep, asking the right questions, and uncovering innovative solutions that propel projects forward.  

By encouraging team members to question assumptions, think creatively, and try different approaches, organizations can create an atmosphere where creativity flourishes and new ideas can emerge.
