What is Project Management?
Per the Project Management Institute:
Project Management is the use of specific knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to deliver something of value to people. All projects are a temporary effort to create value through a unique product, service or result. All projects have a beginning and an end. They have a team, a budget, a schedule and a set of expectations the team needs to meet. Each project is unique and differs from routine operations—the ongoing activities of an organization—because projects reach a conclusion once the goal is achieved.
At it’s simplest, Project Management is the process of leading the work of a team to achieve all project goals within the given constraints of the “Project Management Triangle” of cost, schedule, and performance.
Project Managers will serve as both the leader of that team and the champion of the client’s needs balanced with the performing organization’s goals and objectives.
Project Management Process
As defined above, all projects can be thought of as temporary efforts that aim to produce a successful result with clearly defined process steps. A PMI-Certified Project Management Professional (PMP™) can help guide you and your team through these steps efficiently and successfully.
These project steps of initiation, planning, execution, monitoring & controlling, and closing are critical to your team. Our PMP™-certified Project Managers know how to do this and how to tailor industry standard processes to meet your team’s particular challenges.
You know your team is capable of the technical project goals you’ve laid before them. The only thing missing is someone who knows how to apply repeatable processes that actually help your team achieve those goals. “Process for the sake of process” only gets in the way — we’ll streamline your team and your business while getting the job done and letting you chalk up success after success.
