Interface Project Management

In a Project with many different activities, processes and disciplines, conflicts can occur when different Stakeholders and Teams within the Project find difficulties with the inter-relation of their activities.

When work activities, work input or work priorities of one Stakeholder or Team are different from, but directly affected by others, an additional input of Project Interface Management is required to solve this problem. This especially applies to external Stakeholders such as suppliers, design consultants, contractors, public administrations etc.

The role of Project Interface Management is to bring these work activities together and steer them forward to clear the blockage.

This role requires Management, Negotiation, Administration and Human skills as well as an understanding of the issues involved.

Interface Project Management deals with the conflicts and blockages that can arise between Stakeholders activities during the Project.
