Quote from Free Project Management Certificate Course Online:
Project management is a term that in some respects appears ubiquitous, yet in practice, it seems to still be relatively confined to big business. While this may be the case, the underpinnings of project management are actually quite simple and can be adapted by virtually anyone. But, before we get too far down this path I think it is important to look at what project management is...and what it is not.
Once you have begun to execute the project tasks and activities, you will begin controlling the work and the times it takes to complete it. Controlling the project is not as difficult as it sounds if you have good management support. Again, try and remember that your resources (those doing the work) are responsible to the stakeholders and management to ensure that they are completing their assigned work, on time. Your role is to ensure that everyone knows what tasks and activities they are supposed to be working on and tracking that completion on the project plan. From there, at regular intervals, you need to report progress to management. Management won't typically want to know every task that is being done, but they will need to be apprised of what tasks are behind schedule. You always need to have a "point of escalation" plan in case things go south. It is a good idea to also set up a weekly meeting with all of your resources to discuss tasks, completion, issues and other items affecting the project. This becomes your leveraging tool for managing people not in your area and not under your direct management. This also allows a forum to be in place so that everyone is on the same page when issues or questions arise about tasks and activities.
The work breakdown structure (WBS) is a deliverable-based description of your project scope. The work breakdown structure essentially describes the total scope of the project in a hierarchical style. Developing the WBS is a very crucial project management step that allows you to get a complete understanding of everything that needs to be completed. Even knowledgeable project managers frequently do not take full advantage of the value of a correctly-produced work breakdown structure.
Some of the stages in implementing a project are quality control, progress control, change control and risk management. The first aspect we will discuss is risk management, as once you have planned the project it is important to assess any factors that could have an impact upon it.
