Systems engineering has been defined as engineering of the whole as distinct from engineering of the parts. Project management relies upon hierarchical decomposition of the overall project into smaller sub-elements so as to achieve manageable tasks. A Project Manager is often required to take on a quasi systems engineering role. Is there a fundamental contradiction between these two approaches and the roles that a Project Manager is expected to perform? This paper discusses this and the related topic of the relationship between systems engineering and strategic project management
