2. Define operational project management as a set of main (core) and facilitating functions (briefly define every PM function).

Scope – the aims, goals, objectives and donor of the project should be defined

Time – project planning, scheduling and controlling in order to achieve the goals.

Quality – establishment of quality standards for the project and necessary steps that should be taken to ensure its achievement.

Human resource – administration and management of people involved in a project

3. Define project types (according to Turner). Explain specific features of different types of projects (based on WBS and milestone plans).

A paper written by Turner and Cochrane, back in 1993, identified four main types of project that were classified using 2x2 matrix considering goals and methods.

Well-defined goals but methods are poor – in these types of project the management know their goals but they can’t really tell how to achieve them. Rapid development projects usually fall under this category. (ex. NASA mission)

Well-defined methods but poorly defined goals – in these types of projects management knows what activities have to be done (build a plant, work on marketing), but because they don’t know the goals, they can’t define the sequence of activities and the projects usually end up being poorly managed. (ex. IS development)

Poorly defined goals AND methods – those types of projects usually fail because they don’t have the structure so the management changes everything all the time. This usually signals lack of experience and competence. (ex. research)

4. Define project risk (including threats and opportunities) management steps. Briefly describe risk response strategies. Provide examples of risk response strategies.
