People and Project Management

by Joseph_Phillips on December 27, 2012

The hardest part of most projects isn’t the work, it’s the people. It is the role of the project manager to develop, manage, and lead the project team. Human resources management is one of the most difficult areas of project management because often the project manager does not have the same authority as a line manager or director in the organization. In this unit, bear in mind that while the project manager may have the same authority as functional management over project resources, the project manager can still manage the team to achieve results.

Project human resources is more about getting key results than providing team leadership and direction for the people doing the project work. Project human resources focuses on identifying project roles and responsibilities and holding people accountable for the work they are to complete in the project.
