What is Project Management?

Project Management is the effort expanded to yield the successful delivery of the project’s outcomes.  It is usually defined as staged process whereby a project is initiated, planned, executed, controlled and reviewed.  However Project Management is far more involved; it is the coordination of an integrated range of knowledge and skill sets including:

  • Scope Management,
  • Stakeholder Management,
  • Time Management,
  • Cost Management,
  • Quality Management,
  • Human Resource Management,
  • Communication Management,
  • Risk Management &
  • Procurement Management

to yield the optimal outcome for its stakeholders.

Project Management as a career is a dynamic profession which enables the opportunity to work towards the completion of a solution.  Salary aside (what a project manager earns?) many are drawn to Project Management due to the non-routine nature of the work and a practical sense of achievement once the project (or parts) have been achieved.
