The Most Important Thing in Project Management: the Word MANAGEMENT
Jean-Michel DE JAEGER, EMBA, PMP, Project Manager, France, Moderator

The Hardest Thing In Project Management: Managing Cross-functional Activities
Linda Juspandi
I totally agree. However, management of cross functional activities is the hardest thing and are often missed...
For example, security requirements (physical & electronic) often come from the client security department and not the accommodation property group. If it does come from the property group...it is a matter of them forwarding the brief directly to us.
The thing is that some of the reqs are actually in conflict with one another...but unless we go through them in fine combs...we won't know. It is so time consuming (in particular with door schedules etc etc)...
Anybody ever experienced this too...??
