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.
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.
Wide range of project management tasks. As a project is unique, it typically includes collaborators who do not usually work together. In fact, the collaborators often come from different organizations, disciplines, and even countries.
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.
