All management is concerned with these, of course. But project management brings a unique focus shaped by the goals, resources and schedule of each project. The value of that focus is proved by the rapid, worldwide growth of project management.
Following a proven system will always net better results than doing things the same old way. Schedule and budget constraints make it imperative to start any initiative with a strong road map to avoid mistakes and unforeseeable risks.
Our deep understanding of Project Management Methodologies will give your team a secure sense that any initiative across the enterprise will be executed properly, allowing you to complete it on time and under budget. We can facilitate this learning and coaching.
A project is "temporary" in that it has a defined beginning and end, and therefore defined scope and resources.
A project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. Therefore, a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.
The development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new geographic market — these are all projects. All must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning and integration that organizations need.
Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently. It’s a strategic competency for organizations, enabling them to tie project results to business goals — and thus, better compete in their markets.
