    I always include a fundamental element of project management that I seldom see mentioned: authority. A project manager is supposed to manage project resources. Yet, too often I've seen where the project manager simply doesn't have sufficient administrative authority to assign the needed resources. Instead, some other manager who has no project responsibility has to give approval. That can really mess up project timelines. -- Tom
