The levels of staff who are involved with each of the groups of project management processes in Table A. 1 are indicated in Figure A.2. The general planning process PL is not shown as this can take place at various times and places for different reasons. For example, it could take place during the 'Initiating a project' process to create the Project Plan, or during 'Managing stage boundaries' (SB) when a Stage Plan for the next Stage is constructed or when an Exception Plan needs to be produced.

Figure A.2 Project management roles (see Table A. 1 for key).
