Why is Project Management Training is Important?
First of all, what is a project? It may be a business opportunity, such as a new product. Or it may simply be a problem which is scheduled for solution. Projects usually have the following characteristics:
- Finite lifetime
- Team responsibility for completion
- Focused by a clear project definition
So what is project management? It is planning and controlling project activities to ensure goals and objectives are achieved on time, to the desired quality and within budget. It involves ensuring that a common level of understanding exists on the following issues:
- What are we trying to achieve?
- How will we know if we’ve succeeded?
- What resources are available?
- How should we plan and organise ourselves?
Who is involved in project management?
There could be four levels of hierarchy involved in planning and managing projects:
- Corporate Centre – responsible for overall corporate strategy
- Project Sponsor – the person who ultimately ‘owns’ the problem or project. The sponsor should have sufficient authority to make decisions and resolve conflicts, and be able to commit resources, both physical and budgetary to the project
- Project Manager – the individual who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the project team, monitoring and reporting its progress, and delivering the final outcome
- Project team members – the group of individuals executing the project. The team includes all the people assigned to the project, or who contribute towards it in a significant way
