These processes interact with each other and with the processes in the other knowledge areas as well. Each process may involve effort from one or more individuals or groups of individuals, based on the needs of the project. Although the processes are presented here as discrete elements with welldefined interfaces, in practice they may overlap and interact in ways not detailed here. Process interactions are discussed in detail in Chapter 3. There is a substantial body of literature about dealing with people in an operational, ongoing context. Some of the many topics include: Leading, communicating, negotiating, and others discussed in Section 2.4, Key General Management Skills. Delegating, motivating, coaching, mentoring, and other subjects related to dealing with individuals. Team building, dealing with conflict, and other subjects related to dealing with groups. Performance appraisal, recruitment, retention, labor relations, health and safety regulations, and other subjects related to administering the human resource function. Most of this material is directly applicable to leading and managing people on projects, and the project manager and project management team should be familiar with it. However, they must also be sensitive as to how this knowledge is applied on the project.
