As a result of globalisation, the application of new technologies and an ever-changing economic environment, more and more organisations rely on project work, programs and portfolios to conduct business. To stay competitive, organisations are embracing the knowledge, skills and tools associated with project management to successfully deal with temporary demands and produce unique outputs. Project management processes are being used to help project managers deliver new products and services, perform change and transformation, and help project teams get things done.
Project management is often viewed as a rigorous administrative process that's only applicable to large projects. In reality, it's a multi-disciplinary process easily scaled to a project of any size. Project management methodologies can help standardise, structure and organise work methods to achieve things on time, on budget and to requirements. They help focus projects and allow organisations to repeat successful aspects and learn from mistakes, resulting in continuous improvement and enhanced project success.
