construction etc. or manufacturing-driven. power plants). (such as automotive assembly line.  But on the macro level. Dr. (such as aerospace.Project-driven Versus Non–project-driven Organizations  On micro level. organizations are either project.  In a project-driven organization.or non– project-driven. everything centers around the projects.)  Priority resources are assigned to the revenue-producing functional line activities rather than the projects in non-project driven organizations. virtually all organizations are either marketing. engineering. Syed Amir IQbal Project Management 56 .

 Not all projects have the same project management requirements. and therefore they cannot be managed identically. Syed Amir IQbal Project Management 57 . Dr. This difficulty results from poor understanding of project management and a reluctance of companies to invest in proper training.  Executives do not have sufficient time to manage projects themselves. yet refuse to delegate authority.Project-driven Versus Non–project-driven Organizations • Project management in a non–project-driven organization is generally more difficult for these reasons:  Projects may be few and far between.

Dr. project work stays too long in functional departments. only a portion of the organization understands project management and sees the system in action.Project-driven Versus Non–project-driven Organizations Project management in a non–project-driven organization is generally more difficult for these reasons:  Projects tend to be delayed because approvals most often follow the vertical chain of command. Syed Amir IQbal Project Management 58 .  Because project staffing is on a “local” basis.  There is heavy dependence on subcontractors and outside agencies for project management expertise.

He should. Syed Amir IQbal Project Management 62 .

Low-Level Reporting  Inefficient to have too many projects. Dr. its real result is to foster executive neglect of the project.  Although giving a small project a high place may create the illusion of executive attention. diverting executives from more vital concerns. especially small ones.  Placing a junior Project Manager too high in the organization will alienate senior functional executives on whom the organization must rely for support.
