Abstract

The science of modem project management is not new and what seems to have changed over the past decade are the ways of applying theory into practice. This has had as a consequence the need to standardise and structure different project management methods in a detailed, documented and formal manner. On the other hand, change management mostly observed and utilised as an integrated process within project management, is a rational process for exploring decision and behaviour alternatives in an attempt to realign the course of “derailed” deliverables due to change and ensure project success. However, models contained in such frameworks often lack formal semantics and clarity; fail to address and estimate organisational change management as well as risk reasoning as they also do for the rest of the project management processes. This paper argues the existence of a strong coherence between project management and change management; both being transitional activities but simultaneously integrated ones. The model which is presented and analysed regards Project Management Team collaboration success factors and related attributes.
