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.
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.
Using templates not only improves your efficiency, it also brings much-needed standardization to your project management process. Instead of creating documents on an ad-hoc basis, you can have a single template for every function that can be used across the organization.
The project management also helps and guides the project manager and the project team to make better decisions that are crucial in the development plan of a project. It also manages and controls the resources and the restrictions of every project that may have a huge impact statement on the project.
Put simply, it is the profession of planning, organizing, and managing many things, including people and projects. A project has a specific beginning and end. In other words, it is temporary. It also has specific scope and resources. A project is also unique in that it is not a routine business operation. The project has a unique set of operations that aim to accomplish one goal.
