Project Management

Project Management 2018-11-06T10:31:30+00:00

End-to-end project management from content acquisition to project delivery

Any successful business project is not only measured by how great an idea is, but by how successful it is when putting into action. Successful project management turns a winning strategy into a successful reality.

A report in PMI.org, a global network of project management experts, says about 85% of all projects fall short of time and budgetary goals, with an average overrun of 70% in time and 60% in budget and that’s a number that cannot be ignored.

Successful project management enables strategic alignment with business opportunities and provides leadership and a clear focus to execute strategic goals and handle risks. It involves well-crafted strategies, business best-practices, realistic timelines, resources, and processes for smooth operations and delivery. It helps in coordinating with people across countries, time zones, languages, and cultures.
