What is Project Management
Project management is a system or method of guiding a team to perform, achieve goals, and meet the schedule and requirements of a certain project. It is very important to effectuate all the requirements of the client and the project in spite of the limitations and unexpected delays. Scope, time, quality, and budget are the four possible limitations that need to be considered and evaluated to lessen, or better, avoid constraints. Procedure optimization is another key to effectively pull off a successful project. Wherein, the project management process is divided into five stages, which is a step by step process, improving its efficiency and cautious evaluation.
Deep research, analysis, and practicality are needed in this stage to establish the main goal and designate the objectives of the project. This stage initiates the project’s concept to balance the four objectives of the Inception stage that clarifies the scope, project objectives, and feasibility.
In the project planning stage, the scope of the project is determined and essential procedures for the completion of the project are expounded. Wherein, the concept proposal inputs are all furnished and approved, providing an output equipped for the project requirements, the project schedule, and the project management plan. This stage also involves discerning the cost, quality, availability of the resources, and a realistic time schedule. A balanced process cycle with the objectives of the project is attained through project schedule optimization, also to attain the baseline schedule. The baseline schedule is a time frame that is set for the estimated schedule of the project’s completion. Project planning is a significant stage of the project management process since it formalizes the project goals, objectives, scope, time, quality, and budget.
Project implementation is the stage where visions and plans become reality. The output of the first two stages reflects on this stage, implementing all the set and approved project requirements, the project schedule, and the project management plan. The teams involved in the project will be brief with their duties and responsibilities and marks the start of the project. Each team must be informed about what particular task, schedule, and requirements they must accomplish. The project manager must effectively communicate with each of the teams involved to avoid any misapprehension that may cause project delay. This stage is a complex point, wherein a small error might lead to a project set back, or even worse, project cancellation. Hence, continuous updates and coordination is a regular obligation.
Project Performance or Monitoring
There are a lot of potential risks and constraints that might be left unpredicted even with the extensive research and feasibility did from the first stage. Project monitoring can help project managers and their teams anticipate these uncertainties to avoid a derail of the project. This stage defines the objectives of the project, relates the objectives to the application, sets the target schedule, reports the progress or delays, and awareness of the problems which may occur during the execution of the project. By these tasks under the project performance stage, the project can be completed within the budget and on time.
In this last stage, the project will formally end by administering all of the final reports and project documents to the client. A Post Implementation Review is also completed to define the project’s overall completion. For the whole team, a final meeting will be held by the Project Manager to evaluate the project through the process’s attainments, failures, and solutions. This aims to improve each and everyone from the project management team, architecture and engineering team, contractors and laborers team, and the clients for future projects.
