While a project manager is a professional who plans and organizes resources and personnel. They must make sure they complete the project on time and within budget. They must also ensure that the project meets the requirements of the business. Project managers exist in all industries and every type of organization. They may be contractors, managers, employees, or independent consultants.
A real success is not in the completion of the project, but being able to provide a business benefit to the customer from the delivery of the project. After all, a particular project is made to provide benefits and value to the customer.
The project management should effectively utilize all the limited resources provided by an organization. Although some projects have all the complete resources, such as skilled people, materials, budget plan, and so on, it is still important that the project management should make the most out of this resources.
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.
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.
