The fact that Tom Mochal has found it appropriate to present this subject for discussion, and the various opinionated responses from Paul, et all, only highlights the need for project managers.

However, both knowledge and skills will beof little help if the project manager is not the final arbiter of all "opinions" concerning the project.
