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.
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.
While a project plan is a document that may require Excel charts but is otherwise composed in Microsoft Word. For basic projects, however, you may get away with only a Microsoft Excel document.
The project management is very important in the life of every project, as the only focus of a project management is to bring the project agenda to its success. The main function of a project management is to effectively and efficiently guide all aspects of the project from start to its finish.
