Projects are everywhere; in all industries, in private and public companies, in organizations and institutions, in all countries and for all types of products to be produced. This means that project conditions and frameworks are very different. Therefore the world also needs multiple diverse skills and personality profiles to manage projects. Diversity in project teams is key for improving project results and achieving increase in project success as many studies and best practices show. It is also crucial for the future of the profession to broaden and improve the project management recruitment pool. Finally diversity should be part of the social responsibility policy of every organization.
