The Role of Human Resources in Project Management


  • DEMILLIERE, Anne-Sophie


This paper is about how Human Resource Management (HRM) impacts project management. Human Resources in Project Management focus on Project Team recruitment, organization and management until the end of a given project. Its role starts from defining core competencies which are going to be needed, to team building and motivation. The interest is to understand how an executive function can impact Project Management. It is as interesting as Human Resource is a function for which I feel a particular affection. The link between Human Resource Management and Project Management is strategic. Both of them are useful for company competitiveness. Human Resources are the key of every work done within a company as they represent people. Project Management is measured by the different project success that can represent benefit, innovation or any improvement. It appears that project success require success in team project management, which is the HR function. Three main processes are taken into account: selecting, training and managing. They represent the layers of the Human Resources overall role in Project Management. They are described and analyzed while raising their key issues that have to be faced.
