What is Project Management?

It's about leading a team through a structured journey from the project's initiation to its successful closure, ensuring stakeholder satisfaction and value creation.
How Do You Know You Need a Project?
The inception of a project often stems from a recognized need, a problem to solve, or an opportunity to seize. Learn how to recognize when a project is needed and how to get started.
Project Management Lifecycle Overview
The project management lifecycle is a structured framework ensuring a systematic progression through the project phases. It encompasses:
- Initiation: The birthplace of the project where its value and feasibility are evaluated
- Planning: A phase where detailed planning regarding scope, timelines, costs, quality, communication, risk, and resource management takes place
- Execution: The action realm where the project work is performed to deliver the required outcomes
- Monitoring and Controlling: A continuous process ensuring the project stays on track, adjusting the sails as necessary to mitigate risks and address issues
- Closing: The phase where the project is finalized, ensuring all work is completed satisfactorily and objectives are met
