It is what requires gathering and all-round analysis of information with a sufficient level of objectivity in order to elaborate and support project decisions that make the optimal use of available resources and situations to attain desired goals through minimum of problems. Project design is what requires support of technical experts who help organizations to clearly articulate their project objectives, and the strategies and practical actions to reach them.

- Project technologies – review of technical solutions and means that will be used on the project. This also includes associated costs and advantages, or disadvantages.
