8.0 Manage Human Resources


A project manager is 100% responsible for the processes used to manage a project. The project manager also has people management responsibilities, although these responsibilities are shared with the functional managers of the team members.

Some people go as far as to say that managing people on a project is the most challenging and the most important of all the project management responsibilities. Managers that can manage processes but are not very good with people may still be successful on their project. Project managers that are not good at managing processes but are good at managing people may also experience success, although probably at a lesser degree than the prior case. The best project managers do a good job managing the project management processes, plus do a good job acquiring, developing and managing the project team.
