Human resources is one of the 9 topic areas of project management knowledge.

The Project Human Resource Management has the task to "organize and manage the project team".

This means, that " the project team is comprised of the people who have assigned roles and responsibilities for completing the project" (comp. PMBOK3, p. 199)
