Importance of Project Management
The Importance of Project Management
Consider a project authorized by a firm to create
an intranet website that would display its
employee related information. The outcome of the
project is the website, and the duration will
depend on the complexity and size of the work
involved. The project will come to an end when
the website is posted on the server and is ready
for use by appropriate users.
Example The Website Creation Project
One of the major petrochemical companies has set
up a new refinery to meet its increasing market
demand. The company plans to break-even in three
years by achieving the desired volume of output
from its new plant.
Example Operations in a Petrochemical Industry
Once the new plant is set up, the operations to
be carried out in the new branch include daily
production, routine maintenance of the plant,
wages and salary credits to employees, purchase
of raw materials, grievance handling, logistics,
and supply of finished products to the market.
Program and project management focus doing
programs and projects the right way and
Portfolio management focuses doing the right
Relationship of Project, Program, Portfolio, and
Operations Management
Programs and Portfolio
  • A program is defined as a group of related
    projects, subprograms, and program activities
    managed in a coordinated way to obtain benefits
    not available from managing them individually.
  • Project may or may not be part of a program but a
    program will always have projects
  • Project within a program are related through the
    common outcome or collective capability.
  • A portfolio refers to projects, programs, sub
    portfolios, and operations managed as a group to
    achieve strategic objectives, The projects or
    programs of the portfolio may not necessarily be
    interdependent or directly related.

Portfolio management aligns portfolios with
organizational strategies by selecting the right
programs or projects, prioritizing the work, and
providing the needed resources. Program
management harmonizes its program components and
controls interdependencies in order to realize
specified benefits. Project management enables
the achievement of organizational goals and
