Project Management

Introduction to Project Management

What makes a project management so interesting

Project Scope and Quality Management/Control

Project Scope and Quality Management/Control

Project scope is the part of project planning that involves determining and documenting a list of specific project goals, deliverables, features, functions, tasks, deadlines, and ultimately costs. In other words, it is what needs to be achieved and the work that must be done to deliver a project.

A project is an activity that has a start and end date. It is unique, brings about change and has unknown elements which create risks.  Project management has been proven to be the most effective method of delivering products within cost, schedule, and resource constraints.  To ensuring Quality Assurance and Quality Control, you must involve the use of several quality control tools and techniques.  Often, a triangle, commonly called the "triple constraint", is used to summarise project management

Projects must be within cost, projects must be delivered on time, projects must be within scope, and projects must meet customer quality requirements.  Projects has five phases (initiation, planning, executing, control, close).  These phases assist project managers to execute project effectively.  To know if a project is still on course regular discussions between team members and the project manager should take place to see if the project is still on track.  To measure project quality, 4 project constraints are used, namely, scope, cost, time and customer satisfaction.  This quality control is done after a project is completed and implemented.  One important thing about implementing a successful project is having project team members and leaders that are well established.

The importance of project planning entails cutting corners in project planning is a recipe for disaster, no matter what the reason. The initiation phase is critical to the success of the project as it establishes its core foundations. Effective project planning takes into consideration all aspects of planning including stakeholder engagement, benefits mapping, risk assessment, as well as the actual plan (schedule) itself.
