Project comes in different sizes and complexities. The first question that come into mind is can we apply the same Project Methodology across all industries? In essence, project management is about managing a group of interrelated processes; Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitor and controlling and Closure.  Managing projects in a RD&D environment is challenging, especially when it involves multi-disciplinary team located geographically in a different time zone and when product specification is still in a proving cycle phase. It is very important that the team knows what the project scope and product scope are. With a clear project and product scope Project Manager and project team members will be able to identify task to be completed to achieve a development objective in different phases of product development cycle. Monitoring and controlling an integrated project plans and task executions is a constant challenge. Agreeing earlier on in the project the communication process, method and tools will help in driving an effective project execution.
