Project Management

Project Management

Project management – So what is Project?  It is a collaborative enterprise. It involves careful planning to achieve an aim. Projects are usually temporary social or work systems. A project is not a routine operation. A project team often includes people who don’t usually work together.

Projects

Projects include:

  • The development of software
  • The construction of a structure
  • The assistance is given after a natural disaster
  • The expansion of sales into a new market

Projects must be expertly managed to deliver results on-time, on-budget and that meet the needs of organisations.

More in depth

Project management is the application of processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the project objectives. It’s a strategic competency for organisations. It enables them to tie project results to business goals. This means they become more competitive. Project management processes fall into five groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, Closing

Project management includes:

  • defining the reason why a project is necessary
  • capturing project requirements
  • specifying the quality of the deliverables
  • estimating resources and timescales
  • justifying the investment
  • securing corporate agreement and funding
  • developing and implementing a management plan
  • leading and motivating the team
  • managing the risks and issues
  • monitoring progress
  • managing the budget
  • maintaining communications with stakeholders and the organisation
  • provider management
  • closing the project

Discussion questions:

  • What is your project?
  • What problems do you foresee in implementing it?
  • Who is on your team?
  • Do staff members have allocated roles?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What skills are involved?
  • Do you have any constraints (time or money etc)
  • Do you need any permissions or documentation?
  • Have you created a plan?
  • How long will the project take?

Conclusion
Project management thus

  • provides a greater likelihood of achieving the desired result;
  • ensures efficient and best value use of resources;
  • satisfies the differing needs of the project’s stakeholders.

Project Management can be taught as part of a Business English Course (Kursy Angielski w Biznesie). It can, however, be taught on its own as a specialist topic where we examine ways in which your company can move forward etc.
