Project management is the act of organising and coordinating resources to ensure that the goals of a project is achieved. In a week, a single organisation can get multiple projects and having these stack up with no proper method of filtering these out only allows you to see the tip of the iceberg.
Why is Project Management important in today’s work environment?
- Ensures that you have a successful project; on time; on budget; and within scope.
Project management as a skill set is important as it allows you to work through cross functional departments. Being able to integrate the right skills together in the most efficient manner is the start of a successful project.
As the environment keeps changing; more and more companies are starting to manage their projects which lead to a higher customer satisfaction. If this is causing the benchmark to rise higher and higher, are you really doing enough to exceed this new benchmark?
Your business needs to gain a competitive advantage. Being able to navigate and seeing the overall picture rather than taking a shot in the dark on status updates, and having transparency on what is going on in a project is vital to ensuring a timely success.
