Project Management

'Project management is the discipline of defining and achieving targets while optimizing the use of resources (time, money, people, materials, energy, space, etc) over the course of a project (a set of activities of finite duration).'

There have been several attempts to develop project management standards, such as:

  • A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide)
  • PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments)
  • V-Modell (German project management method)
  • HERMES method (The Swiss general project management method, selected for use in Luxembourg and international organisations)
  • Organisational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3)
  • ISO 10006:2003, Quality management systems — Guidelines for quality management in projects
  • Software Engineering Institute: Capability Maturity Model
  • Total Cost Management Framework (AACE International's process for Portfolio, Program and Project Management) (ref:Cost Engineering)
