Interesting this your question
Thanks for sharing
Adriano Freire in his egos map, 4 types of pure personalities that result in 16 mixed mixed personalities
It is a very interesting model.
According to him, people with the most appropriate profile should be chosen to manage the projects according to their specificity
I do not know the model you presented, if there is more material to identify project managers according to the proposed typology.
It seems to me an interesting approach based on the principle: the right manager for the specific project
Thanks for sharing your opinion, I don't know the model of Adriano Freire, I will take a look seems interesting.
Interesting model, Alexandre! To this list I would add:
Bureaucrat: 1-Worshipped 2-Less important than following well-established processes and 'best" practices 3-bow down and blindly follow 4-governance checklists and SOPs
Thanks for sharing your ideas, I think you could always join more categories according to the project manager characteristics.
The ones you added make total sense according to the subject.
Thanks for sharing, Alexandre.
It is yet another model to look at the world and adds a new perspective.
Not sure about the practical value in itself, have to think about situations where this may help.
Thank you, for your appreciation, I agree with you it's just another model doesn't hurts to know, if it has practical application in the moment honestly I can't tell.
Thank you for sharing. Interesting comments. Will definitely research more on this and the Adriano Freire's egos map mentioned by Luis. All interesting perspectives.
It is the desire of all project managers to have more than one weapon in their arsenal that they can draw on when and if the situation arises. Some of these skills come naturally and may have been learned through different non work related situations while other skills are developed and evolve through various projects a project manager would undertake in their career. I would see the classification of project managers into various grouping based on personal characteristics and attributes as a mechanism to try and breakdown the ingredients it takes to make a project manager. It takes hard work, determination, self learning and a lot of other attributes to become a project manager, not simply something that can be defined or explained in an article. But for learning purposes it make sense in trying to understand what makes something tic.
Interesting Information share, thanks for sharing.
I'd like to read the article, do you have a link?
based on your summary I find it extremely interesting the article positions the PM in an authoritarian type leadership role; the Prophet evangelizes, the Gambler pushes reward over risk, the Expert teaches, and the Executor directs. Even Kiron's Bureaucrat is guided by rules and governance. The use of a "weapon of choice" seems to put the PM in an adversarial position between the project team and the stakeholders.
With that in mind, I'd like to add another type for consideration: The Servant Leader 1 - Serve 2 - Collaboration with stakeholders 3 - focus on communication 4 - Teamwork
I've found that the teams I lead perform better when I let them self-organize while I am focused on clearing roadblocks, managing scope, and helping them be more efficient. I tell the team that I am the least important member, and the easiest to replace; if the team loses a developer or a business analyst they lose all the knowledge that that person has. If they lose their PM they can keep on with a minimum of lost knowledge.
Looking forward to your thoughts.
