Exhibit 2-2 shows the relationship between ongoing management and project management concepts. This chapter was adapted from Paul C. ” Reproduced by permission of Butterworth-Heineman Limited, Oxford, United Kingdom, from The International Journal of Project Management, Volume 8, February 1990, pp. 33-38. Exhibit 2-1. Range of projects. Physical (technical) Mixed (systems and people) Nonphysical (purely behavioral) Building a bridge New computer hardware and software system New materials-handling equipment Managerial training New corporate budgeting system Organization change Constructing an add-on to a factory Establishing additional facilities Quality awareness program Two common situations executives face are as follows: 1.

Two major types of tasks are recognized: administrative and behavioral. Administrative tasks include employee relations, compensation, and evaluation, as well as government regulations and evaluation. Much of the administrative activity of the project manager is directed by organizations and agencies outside the project. Understanding how these work can facilitate the process. The behavioral aspects deal with the project team members, their interaction as a team, and their contacts with individuals outside the project itself.

From this it is easy to integrate the essential concepts of modern quality management, including conformance to requirements/specifications, do the right thing right the first time, the customer is the next person/operation in the process, and ultimately the reduction of variability through statistical process control. Such a conceptualization and definition is critical to the future of project-oriented industries and organizations as they strive to match the performance of volume manufacturing organizations in achieving quality and reliability levels for which defects are measured in parts per million.
