for defining, teaching, and enforcing the use of good project
management practices. They have a broad and flexible toolkit of
techniques, resolving complex, interdependent activities into tasks
and sub-tasks that are documented, monitored and controlled. They
adapt their approach to the context and constraints of each
project, knowing that no "one size" can fit all the variety of
projects. And they are always improving their own and their teams'
skills through lessons-learned reviews at project completion.

success is directly related to satisfying the customer; therefore,
customer involvement is essential to ensure that the right product

significant project status leaves the boundaries of the project
without PM approval.
- Applies Lessons Learned From Recent Projects: The PM studies
the lessons learned from prior projects and applies the most
important lessons to the new project.
- Encourages and Supports Escalations: Communicates to all
concerned parties project milestones, status updates, as well as
any existing or potential customer escalation issues. Proactively

ownership of all management reports on a given engagement. The PM
establishes a project culture where escalations to resolve
"stagnant" problems are viewed as good business and not viewed as
- Promotes Good Working Relationships: The PM serves as a role
model in promoting good working relationships across a project.
PM's cultivate the people skills needed to develop trust and
communication among all of a project's stakeholders: its sponsors,
those who will make use of the project's results, those who command
the resources needed, and the project team members. Enforces
Effective Change Control: The PM ensures that scope creep,
communications, and quality are carefully managed.
- Drives Decision-Making to Lowest Level Possible: The PM drives
ownership of decisions to the level where the accountability of the
decision must lie. A key result is that project members, with
proper training and coaching, will almost always rise to the
expectations placed on them.

- Consensus and Contingency: The PM routinely engages in building
consensus, developing contingency planning and providing recommend
- Maintain detailed records: Maintain documents of the life of a
project and share information as necessary.
- Manages to Project Priorities: The project manager understands

problems are not being worked to a swift closure; therefore, most

the project's top three-to-five priorities. Qualifications:
