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.
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.
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.
