Some projects are simply too large to manage as a single entity.
‘Adventure is the result of poor planning.’
COL. BLASHFORD SNELL
We have seen that the staged project framework can be applied to any type of project for any purpose. It is a tool that you can adopt and adapt to suit your needs. Nevertheless, a simple string of activities, passing through five defined stages, may not give you the full flexibility you require. We saw in Figure 12.7 how we can manage the subparts of a project using the work break-down structure. This is how the project manager delegates work to the managers within the core team.
