What is the Difference Between Project Controls and Project Management?
There are 3 key differences between Project Controls and Project Management:
1- Project Control is one of the Project Management subsets with the primary focus of managing the project’s cost and schedule.
2- Project Manager is directing the work of the project team while the Project Controller advises the team and the Project Manager of possible cost & schedule issues/ recovery plans.
3- Project Controller generates the project’s cost/ schedule information while the Project Manager consumes the information generated and makes decisions for the project.
