It is widely accepted and consistent with the Project Management Institute (PMI) Standards that project management is composed of five process groups, which interrelate during the life of the project. According to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), "project management processes are concerned with describing and organising the work of the project." In this workshop we will be focusing on the Planning and Control areas of projects with particular attention to the proactive detailed planning processes that can prevent problems and issues.
