Principles of Management

A manager can control 4 things:

Resources (can get more dollars, facilities, personnel)

Time (can increase schedule, delay milestones, etc.)

Product (can reduce functionality - e.g. scrub requirements)

Risk (can decide which risks are acceptable)

Approach (applies to any management)

Understand the goals and objectives - quantify them where possible

Understand the constraints - with uncertainty, use probability estimates

Plan to meet the objectives within the constraints

Monitor and adjust the plan

Preserve a calm, productive, positive work environment

Note: You cannot control what you cannot measure!
