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.
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.
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.
Examples of projects may include the construction of a new bridge or building or developing software for an improved business process. A relief effort for a natural disaster, or setting up a strategy to break into a new sales geographic market are also projects.
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.
