Everyone manages projects — even if “project manager” isn’t your official title. Whether you’re a marketer or a creative director or an IT professional, project management is essential to achieving business objectives. Project management can be defined as the actual process of creating, organizing, and executing a plan in order to meet specific goals. However, project management is much greater than its definition. It’s actually a vast subject covering a wide variety of topics. Project management is the process of steering a project from the start through its lifecycle. The main objective of project management is to complete a project within the established goals of time, budget, and quality. Projects have life cycles since they aren’t intended to last forever. A project management life cycle starts when the project is initiated and ends when the project is either completed or terminated in one way or another. Process-based project management allows project managers to create, manage, and improve projects that align with the vision, mission, and core values of a business. All project activities and objectives are designed in such a way that they contribute towards achieving the most important organizational objectives. Process-based project management includes six stages: - Defining the processes - Identifying process indicators - Measuring performance - Adjusting objectives - Planning improvements - Implementing improvements Ideal project management can increase organizational efficiencies, boost team performance, and impact the bottom line. However, we realize not everyone is a project manager by trade. Although project management is common in all aspects of business, there are many complex concepts and terminologies OUTLINED in this BOOK that may help you take your project managing career to the next level.

Projects are the means of implementing organization strategy. While strategy may be the foundation, it soon gets lost in the details of implementation. The resulting strategy-project disconnect can be a source of overall project failure.Fundamentals of Program Management: Strategic Program Bootstrapping for Business Innovation and Change deals with this issue in a new and innovative way. The book is a core subset of a larger, highly successful book previously published in Japan. Its purpose is to provide a linkage between strategy and project management through programs, and to offer a framework for integrating strategy, programs, and projects. To date, this critical linkage has not been well understood and has usually been left to the personal knowledge and expertise of project managers engaged in actual tasks.Author Motoh Shimizu proposes three conditions for successful realization of strategy: appropriate planning, sufficient and appropriate capability in the performing organization, and motivation among the performing staff. He describes Strategic Program Bootstrapping as the method for tying these elements together for successful implementation of strategy. Strategic Program Bootstrapping is a distinctive approach in that it defines a program as a refined expression of a strategy itself. Strategy and program are one and program managers are expected to be deeply involved in strategy and planning. This book is serious business. It is not a light read. Every page is solid substance with potential benefit to readers. The language is reader friendly and throughout, the book is peppered with helpful sidebars that explain or clarify key terms or points. The almost revolutionary approach is presented in five logically sequenced chapters: •Programs and Business Management – foundations and definitions related to strategy, programs, bootstrapping, business value, and systems.•Program Implementation Management Processes – the practical “how-to” of program mission definition and scenarios, program design (the details), and program implementation (integration, external relations, changes, and contracting).•Strategy Management and Risk Management – business strategy, strategy analysis, relationship between strategy and risk, risk management (identification, analysis, response) and risk maturity model.•Value Assessment – concepts, objectives, assessment methods, assessment in non-commercial programs.•Project Organization and Project Management Competency – management organization, project organization, project management office, organizational maturity, communities of practice, individual capabilities, learning, competency model.Some years ago, the practice of Japanese quality opened the eyes of businesses worldwide and was the cause of great change. This breakthrough book may well serve a similar role in the science and profession of project management.

Organizations are developing project managers from within more and more. Employees who are proficient in their area of expertise are being asked to take on project management.This book explores the basic concepts and fundamentals of project management.Project management processThe first lesson focuses on the project management process: highlighting the importance of effective project management, who's involved with projects, and an introduction to the four phases of the project management process.Project manager roleThe second lesson focuses on the project manager role: highlighting typical roles a project manager must fill to be successful, the value of the project manager, how to deliver the right amount of project management, and how to manage small to medium projects.This book will provide individuals who are not professional project managers with the knowledge required to build a solid understanding of the fundamentals of project management, helping them transition to the role of project manager.Today's business world is a complex and rapidly changing place. Organizations and individuals cannot survive without accepting and embracing change. Change involves your situation: something is different; a bigger office, a new colleague, the reorganization of staff responsibilities.Transition involves a journey; it is the process of disengagement, transformation, and acceptance of change.Put simply, change is the event and transition is the process that takes you there. While it is important to know the terms, concepts, techniques, and skills that are involved in project management, it is even more important to be able to put these to work on the job.A project manager is expected to deal with intangible issues such as human dynamics, establishing authority, and managing people and expectations. This often requires a complex balance of personal and practical skills.Project management is about the management of people, but it is also about managing the way an organization works, and the way the people within it work.As a project manager, you will need to realize that people are inseparable from process. It is not only practical skills, but leadership ability, management skills, and the ability to communicate that are imperative to successful projects.Benjamin Franklin wrote, "For want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost, being overtaken and slain by the enemy, all for want of care about a horseshoe nail."A small problem overlooked in the early stages of project management can grow to be a critical failure in the later stages.The Initiating and Planning phases of project management are vital to the success of the project. Without the proper tools and information, effective project management is impossible.Imagine what would happen if the head chef of a busy restaurant didn't have the right ingredients for the evening menu. What do you think would happen if she didn't have a plan for efficiently preparing all of the meals during the supper rush?If you don't initiate your project properly, you might not have everything you need to meet your goals. And if you don't plan your project well, you might not meet your goals on time - or at all.This book examines the importance of properly initiating and planning a project, and explores ways to make your initiating and planning efforts more effective.Your project plan is complete. Tasks are clearly outlined, the schedule is in place, and the money is budgeted to the cent. You're getting ready to dig in and start the actual work.You're feeling confident that the project is going to go exactly as planned. How could anything go wrong?Managing is the third phase of project management. You may be tempted to think now that the planning is over the rest of the project will be easy.
