Project control requires many processes which differ from one project management standard to another. In this paper, project control is investigated based on two different standards: PMBOK and PRINCE2. The aim is to identify which processes are central to project control through network analysis. The results open up a new vision of looking at project control by stating that not only the traditional triangle of quality, time, and cost control but also change control and corrective action decision-making are at the core of project control.
