Project Management Association (IPMA) under European system indicates that method application is a key aspect to achieve efficiently the planning schedule, cost, quality, and scope. According to discussions from British and American systems mentioned above, what is the core aspect in project management? On which aspect shall we expect the project executives to focus in order to achieve the target more efficiently? For this purpose, this research is focusing on proving the three core aspects of planning schedule, quality, and cost, basing on Kano II dimension quality mode. Also, the research result will be provided to operators in project management and the related researchers.
