SIM Houston Q1 2019 CIO Quarterly Breakfast

Why Project Management: Lessons from a real world expert!

The very basics of project management are as follows: A project is a temporary endeavor with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained and often constrained by funding or deliverables) that an organization takes to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or add value.


The Project Manager must be equipped with certain skills to achieve success on a project.  These include:  artistic skills, such as leadership, interpersonal relationships, building a shared vision with a team and stakeholders, the art of persuasion and influence, as well as articulating these attributes. 


The Project Manager must also possess the knowledge to being able to deliver under constraints of scope, time and costs as well as being able to manage risks and deliver quality deliverables and products.
