Project Management - Overview

Project Management is a key for any kind of project we do, even without we really plan it. Really. Without PM, at least in mind, it's hard to get something to go-to-market.

Flow of Project Management Process

1. Initiate
2. Planning
3. Executing
4. Controlling
5. Closing






Lets go deeper on each section

1. Initiate

Usually this come from the idea. Thought. The need to do something or some prospect want us to help them to build somehting.

2. Planning

This is part is 'renyah'/ pain in the butt. Why not we just kick that off right to development right? Yeah, as we grow older and matured. We pretty much make many projects. And yet, this one is kind of similar to previous one but, we want make this next project will be better and more polished. How we want to plan to use our time. We have lot of time but we forget what should we do. Some time we know to start but not finished it.

Have a deadline is important. Or at least set when it should be done. And sometime of course we hit it. We cannot do on time, sound familiar? And even we scrap the project due to valid reason. Yeah we have the experience. And we hope don't want to make that kind of problem.

It's easy to initiate a project that to be abandon. We want to plan on how we can finish the project.

3. Executing

This is a process that is require skill, talents, Googling and bravety to ask. And of course hard work.

It is advisable you do the 'feasability study' to know weather you capable to do the project or not.

4. Controlling

This is what I can say as to measure how to progress is going. Using tool like, many on the net, Asana, Trello, you name it. This is where we communicate about the progress we are doing. Weather on time, late, or early.

We propose to use a Numbers file which consist 'Project Charter' and 'Timeline'.

5. Closing

Time to celebrate right? Yes if it is a client project, they will do the next step which is marketing. We have to market our product. Let people know, understand, like, love and be our raving fan.
