Integrated planning The application of management processes that bring together the planning of benefits, success criteria, scope, quality, time, resources, cost, risk, communications etc to create the project management plan.
The generic area of operation is project control, focusing on the techniques and processes listed as well as interfaces to other subject areas, e.g. risk, governance, programme and portfolio management.
Beyond the tool set there is an interest in the behavioural aspects of management and how this affects implementation and leadership within these areas.
"Planning determines what is to be delivered, how much it will cost, when it will be delivered, how it will be delivered and who will carry it out. "
