Project Management – what does that really mean?

Project Management – what does that really mean? Archive

As project manager here at Urban Element, I find that it is far more than managing the mechanics of a project – it’s managing client expectations, the team, the highs, the lows and your boss’ expectations! It is also managing budgets, time lines, quality – it is so much more than simply kicking a project off, telling people what to do and expecting it to finish on time. There’s monitoring, mentoring, juggling and INVOLVING!

I have this quote on my desk as a daily reminder to involve people within the project:

Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand

Chinese Proverb


It really can be a challenging role but I find these top ten tips from Pete from Gibe Talking really useful in helping me manage the many projects that we undertake each month.
