There is no disputing the fact that both planning and execution are equally important in project management. But is one more difficult than the other?
The answer is – it depends. There are two schools of thought. I will describe both points of view here. One fact that is consistent through out the project – both during execution and planning is that the project’s environment is in constant flux. The project has to be continuously adapting to the changes in the environment. This includes both external and internal changes.
