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.
Other project management aims to optimize the allocation of significant inputs and apply them to meet predefined value statement of objectives.
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.
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.
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.
