Project Management is the temporary provision of resources usually focusing on non-core activities of the business or special initiatives that stakeholders are willing to commit resources to.
Project Management is not something that can be done by anyone, and all too often there is an assumption that if someone can manage a department then that same person can manage a project.
Very often the people that do ‘steady state’ roles are different to those responsible for ‘non-core activities’.
The role of the Project Manager is an important one and fundamental to the success of any project. Organisations make large investments in projects and should make similar investments in the people they call upon to manage those projects. It calls for additional skills and characteristics over and above those which are normally required for line management.
The Project Manager is called upon to manage what is known as the ‘triple constraint’:
- Scope (the project’s objectives)
Our Project Management approach
Step 1: Initial review and assessment of the issues and the proposed project.
Step 2: Document SMART (Specific, Measurable, Agreed to, Realistic, Time-frame) objectives and agree them with the client.
Step 3: Projects are identified and separated from regular ‘steady state’ work.
Step 4: Agree scope of the work, budget and time-frame
Step 5: Start the assignment!
