You can't manage what you don't understand

All projects embody both a management and a technical process, which are intertwined with information flowing from one process to the other. The project manager integrates these different processes via the projects work breakdown structure. Although the processes are different, both assume that the other process is well understood and under control. Despite this assumption, the project manager must thoroughly understand both processes for successful project management, as it is difficult to manage what is not understood. The driving force of a project is the technical process, which accomplishes the projects objective and creates its result. It is the principle reason for the projects existence. The primary concern of the management process is effective control of resources and of organizational commitments. Both of these processes must be mastered for a successful project.
