Project HR management processes

There are four processes in project HR management, which fall into process groups as shown in Table 9.1.

      3 Develop project team      


  • HR planning is about determining project roles and responsibilities, at the individual level and at the level of how they fit together into a team.

  • Acquire project team is about getting the right people for the project on board the project.

  • Develop project team is about taking the individuals acquired by the project in the last process, and improving their individual skills and their ability to work as a team, as appropriate to the project.

  • Manage project team is about applying the OODA loop (that is, applying a feedback loop see pages 66 7) to improve individual and team performance in the context of the project and also the organization to which the team members belong.

Key Idea

Managing people

People do projects, and only people. Software, methodologies, and everything else apart from people do not get projects done. People do. So managing people is right at the heart of project management.
