Introduction to Mastering Project Management Strategy and Processes: Proven Methods to Meet Organizational Goals
Why Organizations Benefit from Projects
As organizations utilize projects more and more to effectively manage the completion of both strategic and tactical objectives, it will become evident that it is the structure of projects based on the organization of activities and the systematic use of specific project management processes that make the use of projects within an organization a powerful tool. It is important for organizations to understand that although processes, by definition of the use of organizational tools and techniques, can be a formidable asset in accomplishing the strategic and tactical objectives, it is the use of project managers skilled, educated, and experienced in project management who will carry out these processes to benefit the organization. Project managers typically stand apart from functional managers and executive managers because they have experience in project management tools and techniques, as well as the practical application of processes and process interactions that make projects a powerful tool within an organization. When organizations grow and become successful, that success is generally from the reality of understanding the value of process development, which may include the use of projects to manage accomplishing both strategic and tactical objectives. Organizations are better and more efficient at conducting daily operations in accomplishing strategic objectives through the use of project processes.
