Creating all these documents from scratch would waste a monumental amount of time. This is why every project manager usually has a trusted arsenal of project management templates.
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, 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.
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.
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.
