The PM4SD Structure
The PM4SD Model is composed of a series of different elements covering clearly defined aspects of the project management discipline. Specifically PM4SD is divided into Processes and component knowledge areas that support the PM in carrying out the activities described by the processes. However, PM4SD also includes extra post-project activities related to the Benefit realisation and evaluation cycle for projects in the Sustainable Tourism sector, as well as specific development requirements dictated by the nature of sustainable projects.
These processes and components are a tailored application of PRINCE2® and parts of MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) to the Sustainable Tourism environment. A case study has been selected and will be used to illustrate the examples and explanations used in the following sections.
