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.
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.
It is inevitable that all projects will run into some problem statements and major odds that are beyond the controls of a project manager that result in a huge step back of a project. However, that is the most import thing to consider as this problems and step backs will be used to make better projects in the future.
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.
The information of the project management is usually handed out in a user manual, that is created at the beginning of the development stage. These restrictions are the time, scope, limitations, quality and budget.
