Applying Skills and Techniques to Meet Project Requirements

Project Management incorporates the following:

  • A focus on controlling the introduction of change
  • Capturing project requirements, deliverables, time and resources
  • Managing the risks, issues and changes on a project whilst monitoring progress against the plan and budget
  • Communications with stakeholders
  • Developing and implementing a management plan, leading a team and closing a project in a controlled fashion

A Project Manager will need to work in a manner which allows different forms of construction (modular, volumetric), facilities management techniques, different logistics and handling requirements and a variety of onsite processes.

The use of digital data throughout a project, with the use of systems such as BIM, will also require another set of unique project management skills and an ability to work more collaboratively with others.

Project management techniques and project planning tools are useful for any tasks in which different outcomes are possible and where risks of problems and failures exist. This drives the need for planning resources and organising activities to deliver a successful result.

Project management covers a wide range of applications and can be used for deploying projects in areas which need planning and managing within our organisations.

Remember; project management techniques are not just for project managers – they are available and useful for anyone.
