Discussion # 1: The Principles of Control
Image of page 3
Project success relies on several control factors, and the monitoring and control process a project manager employs will determine that success. Having full oversight and understanding of the project; the ability to receive accurate, timely, and trustworthy data; and having a team that can be given process autonomy and engaged will improve the ultimate success of the project. Principle One: The Buck Stops with the Project Manager Complete ownership of every aspect of the project from start to finish to include the finances associated/related to the project, there are no divided responsibilities (Knight, Thomas, & Angus, 2012). Project managers may employ formal controls to manage the costs and resources of a project, thus allowing them complete oversight of the project (Detzen, Verbeeten, Gamm, & Möller, 2018). However, granting the team process autonomy can increase the success rate of projects (Detzen et al., 2018). Having complete oversight of a project is key to a project manager's ability to lead a project team successfully. Without complete understanding and involvement in all aspects of the project, the project manager will not be able to utilize the resources of the project team to achieve success.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
