Fundamentals of project Management

Going back to the original question "What are the Fundamentals of Project Management?". It is my opinion that the top-liners should be:

General Management - day to day stuff

Financial - estimating, forecasting and budgeting

Monitoring & Control - risks, issues and planning

Organisation - everyone from the Board of Directors downwards

Resources - mainly the team and anyone brought in to assist, advise or consult

Communication - anyone and everyone affected by the project

Managing Relationships - team, stakeholders, suppliers and internals

Reporting - up, down and sideways
