Why Project Management? Importance
Ana Laura Robledo Corpus, Professor, Member
I think every company needs to constantly change as is currently required to be competitive.
Project management is a critical part in this, as is deciding about the right projects, the project control and the resource commitment in the organization.
 

 
What is the Importance of Project Management?
Paul D Giammalvo, Professor and Consultant, Indonesia, Member
Prof. Ana, as evidenced by the taming of fire, invention of the wheel, the pyramids in Egypt, the Great Wall of China and the other "wonders of the ancient world", it seems as though project management as a delivery system has been part of human development for thousands of years.
I would argue that the propensity of humans to "initiate, plan, execute, control and close" projects is somehow "hard wired" into the human psyche - that if we donít have projects to do, we invent them?
 

 
We Need Project Management for Strategic Projects
thiga, Entrepreneur, Kenya, Member
Unlike the routine operations which organizations undertake, project management often focuses on the big picture of where the organization wants to be, by implementing projects that will deliver the desired change.
Itís often a strategic tool to achieve a competitive edge for example by a re-engineering project or a project aiming to enter a new market.
In doing so, it's critical to understand what each project targets to achieve and set benchmarks that allows periodic reviews along these targets. And most importantly, the top management must support and believe in the initiative, commit the resources required as well as help resolve any bottlenecks.
