Project management is the backbone of any organisation, and without it, organisations may fail to meet deadlines and goals. That’s why in this webinar, we delve into the basics of project management, presented by Ryan, ITonlinelearning’s Project Management Tutor.
Ryan starts by defining a project as any output that needs to be delivered within a set deadline, and project management is the act of managing objectives and deliverables. He then goes on to explain the different characteristics of a project, including its temporary nature, the need for change, the uniqueness of each project, cross-functionality, and risk or uncertainty.
The importance of projects cannot be overstated, as they help organisations to learn, adapt, improve, and adopt new processes, products, and technologies to benefit the organisation. Projects are essential in ensuring that organisations stay ahead of their competitors by being adaptable to new environments and climates
Different project management methodologies exist, which outline the best way for different teams, companies, industries, and projects to be managed and delivered. Ryan discusses the two main project management methodologies, PRINCE2 and Agile, and which methodology would be best for different teams and projects.
