Surveying the Foundations

Before defining the product, process, and people categories where the 34 project management (PM) competencies have been grouped, it will be helpful to describe some fundamental terms in order to create a shared vocabulary. We will suggest practical descriptions of software, management, software engineering, project management, and process in addition to the important definitions listed in following figure "Important Project Management Definitions", to facilitate communication.

Important Project Management Definitions

A number of the terms can be confusing. For instance, the majority of the 34 competencies that we address in this blog apply equally well to projects and programs. Therefore, we may use the terms interchangeably when talking about them. Depending on the context, the abbreviation PM may denote: project manager, project management, program manager, or program management.
