  • jessyl abrenica Philippines 1. Project Management Projects are often involved in different activities that the group of people always encounter when they are asked by their bosses. Projects also, have its different kinds that employs different tactics to make it successful as it become efficient and the desired outcome is undeniably good. Project as defined, is an organized work towards a pre-defined goal or objective that requires resources and effort, a unique venture that has schedule and budget. Project then is known to its involvement with goals or objectives that need to be achieve in order to know that the project is existing or to identify if the project' desired outcome is successful or fail. Goals and Objectives are always associated with different activities, work, agendas and etc. because those goals and objectives that has been set by the project team will determine on what should the project team would to in order to reach and attain the project successfully. The primary goals or objective will be broken down into a number of objectives in order to achieved the desired outcome because project are usually broken into a set of activities designed to fulfill the stated objectives. Project Management requires the organization of people, equipment and procedures or set of goals in an appropriate way to achieve the desired outcome or to complete the desire project within a given time frame with a specific schedule and budget. When an individual learns how to manage such projects or knowledgeable on handling and working with the project, the project then will give an outcome that the project team wants to achieve at the end of the day. The project team should know how to manage schedule, budget, the allocation of the committee, such as distributing the functions of each member of every committee. When planning a project, the project team should consider first the purpose and aim of the project, so that the team would know what they are going to do. Involving the purpose and aim of the project is the main agenda of implementing different kinds of activities of a project as it will serve as the guide of the project team on where should they going to put the implementation of the project. Second, the resources needed in the implementation of the project should be available in both human and material. Third, the project team should determine and consider the costing, human and time constraints and Lastly, is the tasks, procedures or activities that is assigned to each member of the committee required to complete the project. Project management provide a way of controlling people, resources and procedures that clearly identify the tasks that must be completed and the desired completion time. When a team are about to start their project, it is necessary to know the different characteristics of a project so that the project team could just go along with their desired project. a projects is a unique undertaking: each one will differ from every other in some respect - projects have specific objectives (or goals) to achieve - projects requires resources - projects have budgets - projects have schedules - projects require the effort of the people - measures of quality will apply and when it comes to the act of initiating and promoting a particular project, headed by a project leader, someone will have to justify the request for the resources needed to realize the intended benefits and every project must have a sponsor. Sponsors are those people who are able to support the whole project and a person that can communicate with the people of the company who are in the higher position so that the project proposal would be approved. The project team should know how to justify their project and the project proposal must contains on what do the project team wants to achieve, why do the project team wants to do it, how would the project team going to do it, when do the project team going to do it, who is going to be affected and what are the resources needed by the project team.

  • Christian Shippah Ghana Project Management is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals in scientific or daily problems. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives,[ typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services.

  • Reem Ezzet Egypt Project Management is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals in scientific or daily problems. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives,[ typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived constraints. The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget. The secondary — and more ambitious — challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and integrate them to meet pre-defined objectives

  • Elmahi Elshikh Elajab Elshikh Sudan I would like to add one thing to things that needed when planning a project which is M&E (Monitoring and evaluation). Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an essential component of any project, or program.

    • Ngonidzashe Kanyera Zimbabwe This is very correct since it affects the outcome of the final product. I would certainly applaude the idea of periodical or quarterly Monitoring and Evaluation of the activities to avoid escalation of problems affecting the project. Moreso This process needs the attention of every department or office in the project and not only the Project Manager who however has the final decision
