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.
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 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.
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.
Time and budget are the biggest constraints of every project. Now, the goal of the project management is to finish and accomplish the project with a stipulated time and budget.
