Most projects have two factors in common i.e. they involve people and they bring about change. These two factors are fundamental to the success of any project yet they are given only scant reference in the ‘models’ of project management.
The psychology of managing people and change is increasingly emerging as a significant success factor in project management. In Wellingtone’s Project Management Blog Sharon De Mascia offers a plan to ensure you pay these factors sufficient attention.
