Taming Risk; Project Management Perspective
|Re: The One Thing You Can Only Tame But Not Eliminate by iboladeji: 6:38pm On Apr 11, 2020|
The first few classes in our PMtoGrandma coaching sessions are spent extensively thrashing out several basic concepts of Project Management. One of these is defining the role of a Project Manager.
Amongst other functions, the primary business function of every project manager is to organize and plan projects to tame chaos. Chaos is naturally a potential outcome when different things coming together. It can only be tamed to some degree but not completely eliminated.
A Project Manager needs to clearly map out paths from start to finish so as to ensure the outcome meets the goals of the project at hand.
Project management is essentially about taming the chaos of projects.
Some other aspects of a Project Manager’s role involves:
- Communicating ideas effectively to team members
- Scheduling activities and plan resources to that effect
- Setting realistic deadlines and consistently communicate with those involved
- Frequently reviewing budget and as much possible avoid budget overruns
- Analyzing and managing risks (uncertainties)
- Making proper documentation of project progress
- Doing proper evaluation after the completion of projects at hand
- Working vigorously to ensure client’s satisfaction
Know, verily, that the project’s success or failure rests solely on the project manager’s shoulders, and he or she is responsible for the end result.
