Project management - Part 1: Guide to project management
Guidance on the planning and execution of projects and the application of project management techniques.
This British Standard, a part of the BS 6079 series, provides guidance on the planning and execution of projects and the application of project management techniques. It has broad relevance to projects in many industries and the public sector, both at home and abroad. This standard aims primarily to provide guidance for relative newcomers to project management and to act as an aide-mémoire for more experienced practitioners and those who interact with project management teams.
This standard provides guidance for: general managers; project managers; project support staff; educators and trainers.
The principles and procedures outlined are relevant to all sizes of organization, although they may not cover all aspects of every conceivable type and size of project.
Application of these principles and procedures in different industries may have unique and particular emphases and priorities.
