Bas de Baar posted a very interesting analysis of the structure of the project management. He claims that “there is not one theory that explains project management; it is a collection of several fundamental ideas, the theory of project, and theories of management“.
Later on he describes in a slightly humorous way the theory of the project and the three theories of management: management-as-planning, the dispatching model and the thermostat model making this way a dissection of the main principles of the project management, which, however, come from an ideal, theoretical world and sometimes are too far away from the reality.
Great reading! Enjoy it!
