Next focus on the key questions mentioned above and rate the quality of the reports. Mention all the details you feel are missing in these reports. Develop a detailed format for the PFS report and keep it for your reference. You will find that the industry norm deviates significantly from the expectation and is more in sync with ‘filling up a format’.

The Ownership Model for Classifying Project Environments, introduced in this chapter, touches on the way project environments drive the success of a given manager in a given project/environment. The Business Abstraction Based Model for Projects defined in this chapter typifies projects by helping the project manager understand the broader controls associated with the project contexts. The chapter opens a vast range of potential perspectives that the project manager could develop for his specific situation.

In an environment that has low requirements of ‘ownership’, both at the strategic as well as the operational level, the designated project manager actually acts more like a ‘resource’ rather than a ‘management’ expert. This typically occurs in ‘large’-sized organizations where many people work on a particular project at the same time. The project manager, in such cases, is typically a hierarchical place holder. The hierarchy and the sheer numbers of the ‘large’ organization make the decision-making process rather diffused.
