PROJECT MANAGEMENT AS A GLOBAL BUSINESS IN THE COMPANY.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN THE COMPANY
Managers spend much time managing their projects, usually without a methodology.
Above all the project management is a matter of common sense and experience
In project management we Consider it important to manage time, know how to manage the cost, knows how to manage the scope.
MOST projects do not howeve meet deadlines or budget and do not defined and planned.
There are Several steps to consider:
We Clearly Identify the projects We have on the table and we Must Be Aware That projects are complex, resources are limited, and with deadlines and Budgets determined.
We take account of Parkinson’s Law of 1955 Which always says That Work Expands to fill all available time.
As we said, we Clearly Identify what is the scope of our project, Regardless of This, what deadlines you Have to Develop and what the maximum cost budget.
The definition of the project Also take special care to Have in Determining the team That We Will assign the project, what are the expectations and Needs of all group members.
We apply a good project planning. That is, we prepare for battle Must, know what the Plans are to get the win.
But do not fall Into the typical planning mistakes: too much inflexibility, Lack of agility or mindset open to change little.
We Always Have the problem of Difficulty in Estimating the time required what to Perform the Activities to better Never Have Been Made. A Distinction Between what is and what is Uncertain Risk. When we speak of Uncertainty comes to Variations of Known Such as cost elements. But when it comes to Risk, are events of Probability With A Have A particular occurrence and impact.
We make mattresses to minimize Uncertainties and Plans to Establish contingency to cover the Risks.
We Know Where We Are, Where We know we go, now We have to work hard. Peter Drucker Warner: Plans are only good intentions unless change or Become Eventually They work hard.
It is essential in the follow-up phase to Establish a System to Provide us with skills sufficient information for the management of the project’s evolution and Plans to Establish Itself in case of correct deviations.
Finally we Reached the stage of Identifying and Documenting Lessons Learned is, see what Things We Have Done well in the project, what Plans Have Worked to pass On this Knowledge Learned to other Members of our Operations department or the company, across the enterprise in general .
