Sticking to the core Project Management disciplines when managing a project is always a safe bet that may benefit you from the perspective of providing sound project managment processes. By core, I mean those essential tasks associated with the Project Management Body of Knowelege (PMBOK) processes which are boiled down to Time, Scope and Cost. And, within those basics are the tasks and activities that focus on schedule with regards to Time for example. Likewise, concerning Scope and Cost, we hone in on controlling the scope and maintaining cost per the outlined budget.
Sticking the core demonstrates yo our peers and bosses that we have a solid handle on our project efforts and therefore speak to the facts of efforts with accuracy and confidence. Also, the practice of sticking to the core continues to solidify the discipline of project management by highlighting core practices across disciplines which contributes to the development and refinement of best practices.
So, sticking to the core positions you as a "trusted" project management professional in the eyes of your peers, bosses and customers all whom play a vital role in your advancement in the field. This approach will aid you in presenting the facts of your project management venture without getting too caught up in the uniqueness of your project effort.
