A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources.

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.” – Dale Carnegie.

Project management is built around structured methodology – usually – and best practices. Project managers function in a global atmosphere and work on joint projects characterized by cultural variety. There are processes to follow, procedures to implement and documentation to create and deliver. One of the biggest challenges to successful project implementation is the evolution of the project team. Cooperation is the key to project success. One of the human aspects that should be particularly measured in the project team is the motivation of the project team members.
