The project manager organizes a project based upon the right of command authorized by the head of the executive organization (higher-ranked officer). An organizational structure and team of a project should be determined according to its scope, time cost, level of technical difficulty and type of contract.
Project organizations are different depending on these conditions and the policy of the executive organization. What is important in the theory of project organization is the concentration or integration of responsibilities, authorities and information for implementing the project as a team. A project team should be changed according to time and place in pursuit of the optimum form, chain of command, management hierarchy, job type, and personnel arrangement. The advancement of IT technology has enabled a style of management as if time and place are not fixed, such as "multiple office organization" and "virtual office organization." (refer to Chapter 8, "Information Management" P.224).
