What is the term "project management?

The term "project management" refers to the procedure of managing an entire project from its beginning throughout its life cycle. The principal goal of managing a project is to finish a project within the set goals of budget, time and quality. Projects go through life cycles as they're not intended to last forever.

A life cycle of project management begins when the project has been launched and concludes when the project has been either completed or ended in a manner of some sort.

At the conclusion of every phase, there's an end-of-the-day decision point at which participants decide whether to conclude the project or stop it and cut costs.

What is the reason it is important to control projects?

In a study of the Project Management Institute ( PMI) just the 58% of companies are aware of the real importance of managing projects as well as how it helps them to efficiently tackle challenges they confront.

In addition to boosting productivity, enhancing transparency in projects in addition to providing clear and concise vision for the team, managing projects will bring these benefits to the team:

  • Effective communication
  • Efficient resource management
  • Improved customer satisfaction
  • More flexibility and a higher tolerance to risk
  • Team morale is improved
  • Higher quality output
  • Learning from the past

How did the concept of the concept of project management begin to emerge?

The story of project management is that it's existed since the time humans have been around- from the creation of the wheel, through the building of Giza's Pyramids, to and including the development of the gadget that you're reading this article on. All of these "projects" required preparation, and had a designated person to supervise their progress, a sponsor and the people who worked on them. We didn't even call them "projects".

Project limitations like scope and workload weren't thought of at the time, but there was a need for budgets and timelines for projects. The process became more refined over the past 100 years, with methods being created, beginning by reading Fredric Taylor's The Principles of Scientific Management in 1911.

Henry Gantt introduced the eponymous Gantt charts in 1917. Toyota's Taichii Ohno used the basic forms of Kanban and Lean in its manufacturing units throughout the 1950s. In the 1950s, The Project Management Institute was formed in the year 1969. Through the years, as the market's structure changed, newer methods like Agile were developed that improved the process of project management further.
