Chapter 7. Human resource management

This chapter focuses on Project Human Resource Management. Similar to the other knowledge areas, it begins with a planning process, which in this case produces a human resource management plan. It then has three executing processes that focus on carrying out the contents of the human resource management plan. The three executing processes focus on acquiring your project team members, developing your project team members, and managing your project team members.

You may need to pay particular attention in this chapter to the many different theories relating to management, motivation, and development of people, because many of them may be new to you.
