Introduction To Project Management

Project management is the process of managing a team's efforts to meet all project objectives while staying within budget restrictions. Typically, this data is described in project documentation, which is prepared at the start of the development process. Scope, time, and budget are the three main restraints. The second difficulty is to optimize the allocation of required inputs and use them to achieve predetermined goals.

Project Management Activities  

Project Planning 

It is a collection of operations or a job that must be completed before product creation can begin.

Conflict Management

Conflict management is the act of limiting a conflict's bad aspects while enhancing its good aspects. In an organizational environment, the purpose of conflict management is to increase learning and group outcomes, such as efficacy or performance. The conflict that is well handled may improve group outcomes.

Risk Management 

Risk management is the process of analyzing and identifying risks, followed by the coordinated and cost-effective use of resources to limit, operate, and control the potential or influence of unfavorable occurrences or to optimize the realization of opportunities.

Several points demonstrate the project's risks:

  • The project's experienced crew departs, and a new team is brought in to take its place.
  • Changes in the needs.
  • Technology and the environment are changing.
  • Competition on the market.

Requirement Management

Requirement Management is the process of assessing, prioritizing, tracking, and documenting requirements and monitoring and interacting with relevant parties. During the course of a project, it is a continual process.

Change Management

A systematic strategy to deal with the transition or transformation of an organization's objectives, procedures, or technology is known as change management. Change management aims to put in place techniques for bringing about change, managing it, and assisting people in adapting to it.

Scope management

Scope management is the process of defining the project's scope. Scope management is critical since it establishes what will and will not be done. Scope Management establishes the project as a set of limited and measurable activities that can be easily documented and minimize cost and time overruns

Estimate management

Estimate management includes cost estimation and determining the size (line of code), effort, time, and cost of the program. When it comes to size, the line of code is determined by the needs of the user or the program.

If we're talking about effort, we need to know how extensive the program is since we can rapidly estimate how big a team is needed to create it based on the size.

When it comes to time, the time necessary to build Software may be calculated when the size and effort are considered.

When we speak about cost, we must consider all of the factors, including:

  • Hardware
  • Size of Software
  • Quality
  • Communication
  • Training
  • Skilled manpower
  • Additional Software and tools

Communication Management

Effective communication is critical to the project's success. It links the customer, the organization, the team members, and other project stakeholders such as hardware suppliers. Communication is crucial throughout the process, from planning to completion. Communication must be clear and understandable at all times. Miscommunication might lead to a significant project blunder.

Configuration Management

Configuration management refers to the process of controlling software changes such as requirements, design, and development. 

The main objective is to boost production while reducing mistakes.

The following are some of the reasons why configuration management is necessary:

  1. Several people work on Software that is updated regularly.
  2. Assist in the development of supplier coordination.
  3. Changes in demand, budget, and schedule must be accommodated.
  4. Software should be able to run on a variety of platforms.


Configuration management tasks include:

  1. Identification
  2. Baseline
  3. Controlling Change
  4. Configuration Accounting for Status
  5. Audits and Reviews of Configuration

Release management

The planning, managing, and scheduling of the build-in distributing releases are known as release management. Release management guarantees that the business provides new and improved services to customers while safeguarding the integrity of current services.

  1. Why is estimate management critical?
    It's crucial to develop accurate cost estimates if you want to produce a successful project plan. Many strategies are used in cost estimation to translate the project scope into deliverables and estimate the costs of the resources required to accomplish project activities.
  2. What are the tasks done by the project manager? 
    A project manager is responsible for the concerns such as cost, budget, resources, time, quality, and customer satisfaction. 
  3. What are the steps involved in doing a project?
    There are four steps involved: 
    1. Feasibility Study 
    2. Project Planning 
    3. Project Execution 
    4. Project Termination.
