Think of the last project you had to manage. What documents did you have to create at launch? There would be a project charter and a communication plan, of course. You’d have a broad project plan, a work breakdown structure, and a Gantt chart. You would also have a risk register and a plan to tackle all upcoming issues.
While a project plan is a document that may require Excel charts but is otherwise composed in Microsoft Word. For basic projects, however, you may get away with only a Microsoft Excel document.
A project management is divided into 5 phases, including: 1. Project conception and initiation; Phase 2. Project definition and planning; Phase 3. Project launch or execution; Phase 4. Project performance and control; Phase 5. Project close.
The purpose of a project management are as follows: Define project goals and objectives; Set guidelines and rules to be followed; Coordinate and control the many, complex activities of projects; Foresee or predict as many risk and problems that are imminent; Develop an action plan, organize, and control activities that are crucial in the completion of a project; Outline steps and quality plans to achieve the project goals; Determining the budget and time required for each of the daily plans, as well as the project as a whole; Provide a successful project despite the risk and problems.
Project management, therefore, is the application of techniques, tools, skills, and knowledge to make sure all project requirements are met. Until the middle of the last century, project management was an informal activity.
