Do you need to manage your project, coordinate resources, and optimize time?
What is project management?
Project management can be defined as the actual process of creating, organizing, and executing a plan to achieve the specific objectives of a project.
Following a defined and organized process can increase organizational efficiency, team performance, and have an impact on the economic result.
Organizing the activities of a project is not a job for everyone because it requires skill in planning, goal setting, and consistency in measuring results.
For this reason, it is advisable to consult a professional who can best organize and coordinate development activities.
What is the project?
When we talk about project management it is also right to define what the project is.
“It is a temporary enterprise undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result.”
A project is temporary because it has a defined beginning and end over time, and therefore a defined scope and resources.
And a project is unique because it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to achieve an objective. So a project team often includes people who do not usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and different geographical areas.
The construction of a building, the development of software, an application, the expansion of sales to international markets, are all projects.
Each project must be managed professionally, to deliver results on time and within budget.
What are the project management phases?
The project management process is divided into five phases:
- Taking charge and evaluation
At this stage, the project specifications are precisely defined, and the time frame is assessed based on the team and the objective to be achieved;
Resources are organized according to the objective and the period of each process is planned;
We move on to the actual implementation phase of the project.
- Monitoring and control
During the working phases, short and recurring meetings are organized in which the progress of the project is analyzed. In this phase the problems that have arisen in the execution of the project can also be discussed and, if necessary, the necessary corrections are applied.
The test phase, where it is verified that all the expected specifications have been reached, is followed by the closure of the project.
