The literature review has proven the percentage of projects that come short of meeting the expectations of stakeholders is significantly high. There is a gap in the literature on attributes that contribute to successful project outcomes, especially in the aerospace and defense industry. This study explores leadership skills in project managers and how the application of leadership skills contributed to successful project outcome. A qualitative multi-case study was conducted to explore leadership skills in project managers within the aerospace and defense industry. A semi-structured interview was conducted to understand the nature of the project that selected candidates participated in and how the usage of leadership skills resulted in successful project outcome.
