Defining Project Management
  • "Project management is the discipline of
    organizing and managing resources in a way that
    the project is completed within defined scope,
    quality, time and cost constraints a temporary
    and one-time endeavor undertaken to create a
    unique product or service, which brings about
    beneficial change or added value. (Wikipedia)
  • The PMBOK (Project Management Book of Knowledge)
    simply states that a project is "a temporary
    endeavor undertaken to accomplish a unique
    product or service"

Application of Project Management
  • the ultimate purpose of project management
  • to unify and integrate the interests, resources
    and work efforts of many stakeholders,
  • as well as schedules, budgets, and plans,
  • to accomplish the overall project goal
  • the concepts and techniques of practical
    application include
  • proposals and project initiation
  • scope and task definition, project organization,
    scheduling, budgeting, risk analysis, project
    control, and
  • The all-important "people" aspects project
    leadership, team building, conflict resolution,
    and stress management

What Is A Project Manager?
  • individual assigned to manage the project and
    ensure the project objectives are achieved
  • applies the PM knowledge, skills, tools,
    techniques to project activities, and strives to
    maintain the progress while seeking to reduce the
    probability and/or impact of risks to an
    acceptable threshold
  • may or may not participate directly in activities
    that produce the end result

What Are the Roles of the PM?
  • acts as the Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for
    the project
  • leads and directs the project planning and
    execution efforts
  • oversees deliverables and manages expectations
  • manages issues, risks, scope, budget, schedule,
    and communications
  • follows the PM methodology, including creation
    and management of project management deliverables

Project Management as a Profession
  • project management is a profession in its own
    right with many tools, techniques, and practices
  • today everyone in business needs some
    understanding of how to manage projects more
    effectively, because so much of business life
    involves project work
  • many small to medium-sized projects are handled
    day-to-day by competent business people
  • Examples hosting an event, starting a new
    business group, running a marketing campaign, or
    planning a product launch

Project Management as a Career
  • in the corporate world today there is a
    continuing need for dynamic employees and
    managers who can tackle assignments that involve
    planning, thinking, and organizing in an
    environment that has time, cost and resource
  • project management is being viewed more
    strategically within organizations it is no
    longer seen as just an operational activity
  • the trend is showing that it's morphing into a
    C-level management role it has to be as
    organizations implement their strategies through

Project Management Lifecycle
The Project Management Office
  • As projects impact the success of the enterprise,
    organizations have acknowledged project
    management as a distinct and valuable discipline
  • Many are recognizing the importance of
    implementing project management under the same
    structures and centralization that has become the
    paradigm for most other disciplines
  • This has become the basis for providing
    structured leadership through the Project
    Management Office (PMO) function

Benefits of a PMO
  • A PMO typically address the following needs
  • it creates a cadre of people skilled in the art
    and science of project management
  • members view their job totally as project
    management, eliminating the conflict with other
    responsibilities they reside outside of the
    technical functions, removing home territory
  • measurements (and rewards) are developed more
    along the lines of critical project success
  • becomes a repository for project experience,
    models, and standards to be shared with all
    project leaders
  • maintains the awareness of the big picture,
    with visibility to all projects and able to
    monitor trends and global problems/issues
  • better position to provide information and
    reports to senior management, and to make
    recommendations to resolve conflicts and problems
