There are many elements to a project requirements, schedule, cost, quality, human resources, communications, risk, procurement, and every project is complex and extremely difficult to manage to successful completion, even those considered "Small." The majority of the life of a project occurs during its execution. Although the execution phase is preponderant, there doesn't seem to be much emphasis on it. The literature, the training, professional meetings, and conferences do not commit proportionate energy to methods and techniques to prepare project managers for monitoring and reporting performance.
