Abstract

A search for the phrase ‘commercial management’ in the digital version of the 6th edition of PMI Guide released in 2017 fails to come up with a single result. The 6th edition of Body of Knowledge from the UK’s Association for Project Management similarly offers no matches. The leading canons of project management knowledge would thus seem to imply that commercial management has nothing whatsoever to do with projects. The apparent disconnect is a little troubling, since commercial management has a lot to offer project management practitioners and researchers.
