General management encompasses planning, organizing, staffing, executing, and controlling the operations of an ongoing enterprise. General management also includes supporting disciplines such as law, strategic planning, logistics, and human resources management. The PMBOK overlaps or modifies general management in many areas--organizational behavior, financial forecasting, and planning techniques, to name just a few. Section 2.4 provides a more detailed discussion of general management. Application areas are categories of projects that have common elements significant in such projects, but are not needed or present in all projects. Application areas are usually defined in terms of: Functional departments and supporting disciplines, such as legal, production and inventory management, marketing, logistics and personnel. Technical elements, such as software development, pharmaceuticals, water and sanitation engineering, or construction engineering. Management specializations, such as government contracting, community development, or new product development. Industry groups, such as automotive, chemicals, agriculture, or financial services. Appendix E includes a more detailed discussion of project management application areas.
