Rewards and recognition This is a key PMI point. A clearly defined system for rewards and recognition will reinforce the behavior the project manager wants from her project team. Rewards and recognition, however, must be based on conditions within a person's control. For example, if Bob is to be rewarded for managing costs within the project but Bob has no authority over the decisions that affect costs, he'll feel pretty insecure in his ability to realize the reward your project promises.

EXAM TIP Rewards and recognitions are part of team development.

Compliance issues The staffing management plan also details how the project will adhere to government regulations, union contracts, and human resource practices your organization abides by.

Safety Many projects must consider the safety of the project team. While safety for the project team is part of the cost of quality, as I discussed in Chapter 8, it's revisited here to reinforce the need for attention to safety issues. We'll see this issue again in Chapter 11 when we discuss risks and the project team.
