Definition

What is project management? To answer that we need to first define what is a project. A project is a temporary group activity designed to produce a defined product, service or outcome. A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. They can vary in size and complexity but in essence they are defined in that they have a specific set of outcomes to achieve within four constraints of time, cost, quality and scope. Therefore Project Management is, as defined by the Project Management Institute

Prjoect Management Institute

“the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently. It’s a strategic competency for organizations, enabling them to tie project results to business goals — and thus, better compete in their markets.”

Our Approach

Project management processes fall into five groups:  (1) Initiating (2) Planning (3) Executing (4) Monitoring and Controlling (5) Closing.

Various standard methodologies have been developed that cover these processes in different ways to handle different types of project, the most common of which are: PRINCE2®which is the dominant recognised qualification in the UK, PMP® (Project Management Professional) which is the US counterpart to Prince2, Agile, Scrum, FDD (Feature Driven Development), DSDM (Dynamic Systems Development), ASD (Adaptive Software Development), RUP (Rational Unified Process), and the list goes on.

In addition many organisations have developed their own methodologies which are derivatives of one or more of the standard methodologies. And even where some organisations may have the same methodology, there is a level of maturity in the way the methodologies are actually applied.

With this varying landscape it’s no wonder business stakeholders find projects frustrating.

Acceler8 Consultancy cuts through all this by using a simple Project Management Framework© (or PM Framework©) that is compatible to any methodology and can be applied to the maturity level that best suits an organisation’s culture.
