Many people in the project management domain confuse management with governance - this paper by Dr. Lynda Bourne is designed to dispel many of the myths.

If this hypothesis holds, then my proposition (P1) follows: if something is designated as a ‘management function’ it cannot also be designated a governance function; and conversely governance functions are not management functions… Probably the easiest starting point is to briefly outline the widely accepted functions of management.” To read this paper, go to the author’s showcase page in the library at and click on the title.
