Quality management for projects does not mean meeting or exceeding requirements. The PMBOK(r) defines quality as “the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics meets requirements.” The project manager and the project management team have a special responsibility to balance quality and grade (a type or rank assigned products and services that have the exact same functional purpose but with different technical characteristics). This ensures that quality standards are met. Although it is possible to produce products of poor quality, it is unacceptable. At the beginning of a project, all stakeholders are involved in determining requirements. These requirements form the basis of the project’s work.
