Have project managers become too dependent on the project plan, processes and procedures to manage their projects? Are project managers losing their ability to manage/lead the project staff?
Yes and Yes!!
I have never thought of a project manager as someone who was great at leadership, but over the last few years I've witnessed an actual decline in what I perceive to be one of the most important yet over looked attributes in project management and that is Leadership.
As project managers have we allowed the command and control environments project methodologies to manage our projects for us?
Do you think project failures can be attributed to failing project leadership??
