If there is one thing that all projects need, it's people. In all project management environments, it's the skills and talent of people that make the magic happen, so to speak. As such, it is integral that any company's human resource department that employs project management systems remain a people-centered operation. While you may think that any department with the word "human" in the title would be people-centered as a given, that may not always be the case.
Traditionally, HR departments have been focused on hiring, firing, compliance, and rule-setting. They were overly administrative and very bureaucratic. However, the tides may be changing as a more people-centered approach sweeps across the business world.
