Project management is the process of initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, controlling and completing the work of a team within an organisation. It is the management of a temporary assignment (the project) to create, audit and deliver a specific product/service.
While most organisations have dedicated project management teams for their operations, project management is not restricted to this team alone. All professionals experience and manage some project (small or large, simple or complex) in their sphere of work.
Thus, project management skills are important for all professionals to successfully deliver objectives and goals for their team and the organisation at large.
Any professional involved in managing a project of any nature or scale should possess effective skills of leadership, communication, scheduling and budgeting, planning and organisation, negotiation, quality management, risk management, critical thinking, etc.
Project management skills help a professional deal with change and manage it well, improve his/her rapport and communication with subordinates and stakeholders, manage conflict and resolve it effectively as well as maintain high-quality standards of delivery.
