Basic Project Management Principles

One way to look at the project management discipline is to view it as consisting of these three basic principles:

  1. Assignment of integrative project responsibilities„the key integrative roles.
  2. Application of integrative and predictive project planning and control systems„the project documents, procedures, information processing and communication systems, and their application.
  3. Integrated project team-working„identifying, integrating, and managing the project team to integrate the efforts of all contributors to the project.

Each of these is discussed in the following sections.
