The Most Important Thing in Project Management: the Word MANAGEMENT
Jean-Michel DE JAEGER, EMBA, PMP, Moderator
In my opinion the most important thing in project management that many people overlook is in the word MANAGEMENT. Of all the difficulties you face,
- Project methods and tools are useful in project management to organize, to plan, to follow-up, to report but they represent no more than 30% of your challenges as a project manager.
- The other 70% concern the management of the project team, integrating the project into the overall management of the firm, the management of the stakeholders, and of course the management of the client relationship....Register
