2-3-4. Risks, structure & PM authority

Here are some additional considerations when selecting a structure

If high technical risk

  • give project manager more authority
  • matrix better (more skills readily available)

If high cost risk

  • clear goals paramount
  • give project manager high authority
  • more planning, monitoring, control
  • Functional structure better

If high schedule risk

  • more project manager experience, close monitoring important
