Being engaged in a certain project is not that easy. Not only that you are tasked to beat deadlines due to restricted time constraints that may be presented to you, it is also stressful and tiring because you have to consult and coordinate with a lot of different people just to carry out a single function. Getting yourself into such challenging situation will put your abilities to a test.
On a positive note, the job is still rewarding. Let’s say you are employed in a company and you were given the opportunity to get yourself involve in a special project – that means you are one of the best and most trusted associates. There will be a bunch of pretty good incentives as well… the price that the company has to pay for all that tiresome rigorous work. How come the company is focusing on creating projects?
One good reason is that the company will eventually earn more in producing special projects that cater to the demands of the customers. From its definition, a project is temporary collaborative effort undertaken to create a product or a service. It usually has a start and end date and is characterized by progressive elaboration, which means that next steps are determined as the project progresses.
Because of this, a discipline is needed to organize and manage all the resources need to complete a project within definite quality, time and cost controls, hence the birth of project management. Therefore, project management is required to make sure that all aspects of the project are carefully planned and organized to meet predefined objectives.
