Stakeholders in a project are typically divided into secondary and primary stakeholders. Primary stakeholders are the main decision makers who actively participate in the project and exercise significant influence over the outcomes. Secondary stakeholders might participate in meetings or play a small role in the project but they do not have much influence.

There are many types of project management techniques. Agile and lean methods are among the most sought-after. Heuristics, critical chain project management, and agile and lean approach are also very popular. The PRINCE2 methodology is a good example of a structured project management method. It separates the project into seven processes: Directing a Project, Starting Up a Project, Initiating a Project, Managing Product Boundaries, Controlling the stage as well as Managing Product Delivery and closing a project.
