Our approach to project management begins with applying the requisite knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to meet or exceed a project stakeholders’ needs and expectations. Competing demands of scope, quality, time, cost, various stakeholders’ differing priorities and expectations, and other unidentified expectations must be balanced. Castagna Consulting Group achieves this balance by using the following project management knowledge areas (and their underlying management processes):
