Question on Stakeholder conflict

Postby nagarwal Sun Aug 10, 2014 11:24 am

While working on a project, almost all the factors lead to a conflict amongst stakeholders except:
1)Schedule
2)Cost
3) Priorities
4) Resources

Can you also elaborate why you selected a given option? Can it be referenced from PMBOK?

Generally the order (High to Low) is - Schedule, Priorities, Resources, Technical Beliefs, Admin Policies and Procedures, Project Costs and Personalities.

According to PMBOK "Schedule, Priorities, Resources, Technical Beliefs, Admin Policies and Procedures, Project Costs and Personality". Pg 282. Got it!

Friends, i would suggest not to take PMBOK text in sequence of priority and also not to assume that this is the only source of conflict since PMBOK also say include

Conflict is inevitable in a project environment. Sources of conflict include scarce resources, scheduling
priorities, and personal work styles. Team ground rules, group norms, and solid project management practices, like
communication planning and role definition, reduce the amount of conflict.


But yes many Project Management survey indicates Schedule is the most common reason of conflicts.

I could not find the line from page # 282 of PMBOK5 as mentioned by @nagarwal. Thanks Saket for the timely input.

I got it from PMBOK5. Thanks Namita. Earlier quote" Schedule, Priorities, Resources, Technical Beliefs, Admin Policies and Procedures, Project Costs and Personality" might be from an Older Version of PMBOK.
