Quality Focus – Project Managers ensure that all work in one’s own area of the business, throughout the organisation, by vendors, suppliers, etc. is performed with excellence and to high standards for quality and integrity.
Information Seeking – They are driven by an underlying curiosity and desire to know more about things, people, or issues.
