PROJECTS, PROGRAMMES AND PORTFOLIOS INCREASINGLY RELY ON LEADERSHIP (PEOPLE 5). THE LEADERSHIP (PEOPLE 5) COMPETENCE ELEMENT ENABLE THE INDIVIDUAL TO LEAD, PROVIDE DIRECTION AND MOTIVATE OTHERS, IN ORDER TO ENHANCE INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM PERFORMANCE.

A project/programme is often an uncertain undertaking, with as goal the achievement of a specific improvement. It is an opportunity to make an organization more successful. It is often the case that the bigger the opportunity, the bigger the uncertainty. If this does not work with the existing organization structure, a multidisciplinary project team is put together to solve the challenge by looking at it from different angles. This increases the chance of success, because different experts know more and can do more than just one individual. The team has to cooperate for the first time in this composition, and someone has to take and also give the leadership. Someone has to stand up and make himself known as the leader. The formal appointment is not sufficient; you also have to show that you are the leader. You can only do that once you have taken on the leadership, and you are the leader only when people follow you. Without followers, there is no leader! But we are not there yet with this competence element, because as well as a leader and the followers, we also need leadership. That is a characteristic which is not only reserved for the leader, but one that we want to see in all the team members, because all must anticipate on potential problems and take action when that helps the project/programme. The leader provides direction and gets people going. In other words, he inspires his "followers" to show personal leadership. In the complex context of projects/programmes/portfolios, everyone has to be proactive and solve potential problems, instead of expecting a solution from the management. When I am talking about leadership, then I mean the latter: team members who take the first initiative themselves. You have to ensure that such a proactive culture is created.
