How Laws and Regulations Affect Projects: Podcast

by Cornelius Fichtner

James Franklin | PMWorld 360 MagazineIn this podcast, Cornelius Fichtner interviews James Franklin about how laws and regulations affect projects. James has managed over $500M of Government contracts in California and knows a thing or two about laws and regulations.

Every project that you have ever worked on had at least one constraint. Maybe your current project has a fixed budget, and maybe the previous one had to be completed by a certain deadline. But I am also sure of this: your projects had to follow laws and regulations.

They discuss the different types of laws project managers must follow, like the Sarbanes-Oxley in the USA, the protection of personal data laws in the European Union, or the intellectual property laws that most countries around the world have. If you work in aerospace or healthcare, then you will know all about rules and regulations concerning personal safety. They touch on how the must-follow laws and regulations could simply be an internal regulation that tells you that all rental cars must be rented from one particular company.

They point out that laws and regulations limit our choices and freedom to shape our projects.
