In project management, project managers need to think of ways on how to improve the process plan. The process improvement plan is a subsidiary of the project management plan and this link between process improvement and project management shows just how interrelated the two disciplines are in the consulting business.
Project Management is a quite challenging job. While project management practices have changed to be more flexible and open with technology, the foundation remains the same. Project success occurs when a project is delivered on time, within budget, with a set of deliverables that are satisfactory to the client. The Project Manager's main role is to keep all team members aware of these big three - Time, Budget and Quality.
Ryan has over 10 years’ experience in project management as a Project Manager on Process Improvement projects as well as on government contracts for Federal, State and Local government contracts for Architectural and Engineering services. These projects ranged from weeks to months in duration with revenues as high as $1million dollars. In each of those projects, Ryan was involved throughout the functional life cycle of the project, from inception to conclusion.
From the standpoint of project management, there are essentially five key objectives that should be met before one can consider the project to be a success. Those objectives are:
Note that one may argue that a project can be successful if one or more of these objectives is not met exactly (ex. projects often have difficulty meeting schedules). Nonetheless, the point to make here is that there is more than one factor to consider when determining project success.
