First asks first things first. Does your business need project management? Or is time management, resource management and training what is needed.
Project management, simply stated, is a team of people working together, following a set of objectives, methods and processes to define, plan, organize, control and complete a chunk of work ‘successfully’. The chunk of work is called a project: the project is usually unique and temporary – has a beginning and an end.
The project normally has time, funding and resource (people, materials) limitations. In other words, a project has to be completed within a budget limit, a time or schedule limit and within defined parameters. A successfully managed project gets completed on time, within budget, and as defined. Project management, successfully designed and implemented within a company or a department, leads a project from definition through completion all the while keeping a healthy tension on and within the defined limitations. Project management can increase the probability of leading a team and its project to success.
