How to Know: Well-Managed Is Half of the Success 

Project Management

The tasks in Project Management are manifold. Basically, it can be divided into 9 sub-disciplines from the basics to the details.
Integration Management
This sub-discipline is primarily concerned with defining suitable processes that are necessary for good coordination and integration of the project within a larger structure. Specifically, the focus is on project plan development and execution, as well as potential changes.

Scope Management
"Is the project developing in the right direction?" is the central question in this sub-discipline. Accordingly, performance progress must be consistently reviewed and managed. This includes project initiation, performance definition, performance verification and performance monitoring.

Time Management
Time - always an important factor. Especially when it is in short supply. Time management must keep track of time, i.e., keep close track of all project time constraints and deadlines. The schedule, setting task sequences, task duration estimation, schedule development and monitoring are components of this area. Templates are helpful here and save a lot of time, especially in recurring projects.
Cost Management
In all projects, finances are a resource that should be used as efficiently as possible. To achieve this, resources are planned, costs are estimated, the budget is allocated and, finally, the use of financial resources is monitored in project management.

Quality Management
In most projects, there is a client who has certain demands of his product and various quality requirements that quality management must ensure.

Human Resources Management
Personnel management deals with human resources and their coordination:

  • Who takes on which tasks?
  • How long does the person need to do it?
  • Can he/she accomplish the task in the allotted time and with his/her existing skills?
  • With whom should/must they work together?
  • Do we have enough staff overall for the project?

All these questions are asked by personnel management during project organization, personnel acquisition, and team development.
The concepts of team development and team building play a particularly important role in ensuring good, productive, and efficient cooperation in the long term.

Project Communication

This sub area deals with communication in all its facets - whether with employees, project managers, or people outside the company. Communication management collects, defines, and disseminates all information relating to the project.

Risk Management
A complex project is always associated with risks. If a delivery is delayed, production is delayed and deadlines cannot be met, which may lead to further consequences. To avoid such a spiral of negative consequences from the very beginning, risk management deals with risk identification and assessment as well as the development of follow-up measures.
Procurement Management
You cannot work without certain resources. Therefore, the procurement management provides for all necessary goods and services by making preparations for the purchase, obtaining offers, selecting suppliers, being responsible for the contract design and ensuring its fulfillment.
