If you fail to plan, you plan to fail – Vijay Dhameliya
It is important to prevent the chaos
All businesses, regardless of their industry, need to pay attention to this fact: it is impossible to foresee everything. In today’s volatile economic environment it is getting increasingly difficult to take all the factors into account. What matters, instead, is to reduce the risks and make sure that inevitable delays will not hurt business relationships. A good strategic plan is the one that expects the best but plans for the worst.
Set all the milestones and strategy to complete them
Developing a schedule is akin to drawing a navigation map for business activities. Not only that one needs to know what are the risks involved, what is the size of the project, but also to determine when and how each business activity should be executed. In order to pull it off, it is necessary to develop good estimation skills and that is exactly what certified project managers are trained to do. They can use action plans (defining and analyzing the tasks needed to reach the target) or more complex Gantt charts (visual workflow charts) but the thinking process involved in each of them is basically the same. What is necessary is to determine the project scope, take all the risks into account (both foreseeable and unforeseeable), list all the resources one can count on and determine who is responsible for carrying out each task involved. Of course, each schedule is periodically reviewed and adapted to make sure that it is in line with the changing circumstances.
Certified Project managers make sure that everyone in the team gives his/ her best
Once a strategic plan has been devised and schedule set, the next step is to gather all the people who will work on the project. These people will have different skills and mentalities, so it is the project manager’s job to make sure that they all work together and are committed to achieving the same task- success of the project, which is impossible without cooperation.
Everything has to fall into place
What does this mean? Just like one can not grow a palm on Antarctica, it is important to make sure that business activities are integrated and suitable for the company’s structure, available resources, and identified objectives.
Those who work in project management are a brain of every company. It is becoming clear that they are an indispensable asset for every organization wanting to reduce waste and maximize its profits. And this is true for every industry.
