What is project management?

Project management is the management of human and material resources to achieve an objective within a defined time, a set of coordinated and controlled activities including start and end dates, undertaken with the aim of achieving an outcome conform to specific requirements.

Project management covers all the tools, techniques and methods that allow the project manager and the associated team, to lead, coordinate and harmonize the various tasks performed within the framework of the project so that it meets the explicit and implicit needs for which it was undertaken.

Project management is similar to management in general, but incorporates the temporary and unique character of projects. We distinguish :

  • project governance, which ensures the strategic management of the project and which defines the framework within which the project fits, in particular the responsibilities, the decision-making mechanisms, the budget and the deadline;
  • project management processes, which aim to manage the project and its activities, planning over time;

  • the production processes, which define the "project life cycle"

Project management contributes to improving the overall organization of the company.

Role of the project manager

Their role is to define specifications and a schedule of resources and tasks, manage deadlines, costs and schedules, manage and monitor of subcontractors, oversee testing and commissioning and provide final acceptance. The project manager is thus often compared to an orchestra conductor.

The project manager plays an essential role through the communication that he establishes between the different actors of the project. They link the client to the project team, formalize the information and transmit it to the various managers. A project manager thus optimizes the realization of the product by means of effective communication.

 

The objective of this communication is the coordination of the use of means to achieve the objective of the project.
