At A Glance: Project Management

For many businesses, employing a permanent full-time project manager is not a practical idea, as his or her skills are only needed for a specific time on a specific project. Because of this, most businesses choose instead to hire project management professionals and consultants on Upwork to collaborate on that specific task with them. Project management is often defined as the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques across a variety of areas to achieve the project’s goal.

The Project Management Institute describes the position and therefore the services provided by these experts as falling into five areas. There is the conception and initiation of a project, where the organization works with the expert to see what they want to do and what is realistic. Then there’s the planning stage, where this is all formalized along with budgeting and scheduling. Next is the launch of the project, when all relevant members of the team are given their tasks. During the course of the project, the consultant monitors and controls the project until its close, at which point an evaluation is carried out to ensure all the aims of the project have been met and any lessons learned from the work are carried out. Of course, there are variations between industries, and working with such a consultant ensures that the business can personalize the project in any means necessary. It is also the best way to make sure the project is completed as perfectly as possible.
