Software development usually occurs in the context of Software Project Management (SPM). An often cited challenge in the area of software project management is the high failure rate of Software Development Projects (SPDs). One of the factors contributing to the failure of SDPs is the lack of soft issues, also known as soft skills or human aspects. This paper was to identify and categories the soft skills that facilitate the delivery of successful SDPs. To this end a survey was conducted in the form of a questionnaire as the research instrument.
