29 IT Skills Dictionary Skill Project Management Description The management of projects, typically (but not exclusively) involving the development and implementation of business processes to meet identified business needs, acquiring and utilising the necessary resources and skills, within agreed parameters of cost, timescales and quality. Detailed Description Project management developed from the need to plan and control large scale activities. This initially resulted in areas of Project management expertise in the armed services, and construction and computing industries. Today use of Project management has spread throughout industry for controlling large projects and a large number of small projects; other specialised areas have also evolved e.g. bid management and change management. Traditional tools and techniques have focused on project planning and software which allows input of project activities, dependencies, resources, risks and actuals, and provides various optimisation, presentation and reporting options. Other traditional project planning and monitoring tools and techniques are detailed below. Other complete life cycle tools and techniques are now used e.g. Risk Management and Value Management. Typical planning tools and techniques cover: Project management methodologies covering project life cycles, stages, gateways, overall and detailed plans, and project support and administration activities. Project objectives, proposals, critical success factors and business case including, if appropriate, sales assumptions and financial appraisal e.g. pay back, NPV (Net Present Value) and IRR (Internal Rate of Return) Work and product breakdown structures and definitions Dependency networks e.g. CPA (Critical Path Analysis) and PERT (Programme and Evaluation and Review Techniques) Visual presentation of plans e.g. Gantt Charts Use of resource and material requirement schedules, and estimate and cost plans Typical monitoring tools and techniques cover: Monitoring the product scope e.g. change control Monitoring the schedule e.g. milestone tracking Monitoring the cost e.g. actuals versus planned costs – the ‘S’ curve Integrated schedule and cost monitoring e.g. earned value Monitoring the quality e.g. product specification sign-off Formal reviews and auditing Within computing, specific tool and techniques have been developed: Specific project management methodologies e.g. PRINCE 2 Specific design methodologies e.g. SDM (Structured Design Methodology) and DSDM (Dynamic System Design Methodology) Use of additional tools and techniques e.g. test plans and configuration control Training General Skill’s course: Project Management + relevant IT specific course (still to be designed) Skill Ownership Project, Programme & Portfolio Management Best Practice, Methodology, Tools & Techniques PMI is the approved Methodology recommended for study and use in Unilever.
