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 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.
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.
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.
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.
