The activities of a business or a non-business organization can be grouped into two categories: one, process, and two, project. Process refers to an organization’s regular functions such as manufacturing, factory maintenance, sales, and customer support.
In contrast, project is a temporary activity that an organization undertakes to achieve a unique value or a result. In business context, the unique value can be measured in terms of time, cost, and quality of performance. For instance, it could be the development of a new product that is faster, cheaper, and better.
Unlike a process, projects have a start and end date. The art and science of planning a project, its outcome, allocating financial and human resources, design of workflow or methodology are part of what is known as project management. Project management consists of five process areas. They are: initiating processes, planning processes, executing process, monitoring & controlling processes, and closing process.
However, industries and organizations follow different approaches for these processes. For instance, one particular approach may insist on daily review, when it comes to monitoring & controlling of a project and another approach may wait till a milestone is achieved.
Organizations create exclusive job positions for project management or the management of schedules, tasks and resources. Portfolio manager, project manager, project director, and project executive are some of the job titles in project management.
The primary responsibility of a project management professional is to create strategies, plan operations, and execute projects. The professionals are expected to have a strong project management knowledge, experience, training and skills in using project management software.
