Project management is the application of skills, experience, knowledge, methods, and processes to achieve the objectives of a project. It is the body of knowledge regarding projects, i.e., planning, controlling, and reviewing. Project management also involves making sure you complete the project.
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.
Examples of projects may include the construction of a new bridge or building or developing software for an improved business process. A relief effort for a natural disaster, or setting up a strategy to break into a new sales geographic market are also projects.
If you want to complete a project on time, you need to manage it well. You also need to make sure you are within budget. Not only must you work to meet deadlines but you also have to make sure that quality does not suffer.
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.
