Hadi Abou Chakra, Akram Tannir, and Amina T. Ashi
Abstract— There is no best way to successfully manage a project; however, extensive effort is being made by the Project Management Institute (PMI) to establish best practices to manage projects. The output of all the eight project management knowledge areas established by the (PMI) is used as an input to make the project management plan, which is a key to a successful project. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate whether all the eight project management knowledge areas of time, cost, quality, scope, human resources, communication, procurement and risk are cross-linked in practice. Moreover, to discover whether all these areas are actually integrated by project managers when developing the project management plan for construction projects executed in Lebanon.

Index Terms— Construction projects, project management.
