Project Management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria at the specified time. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints. Read more →
In project management terms it’s called the Triple Constraints, also known as the Iron Triangle, that is the foundation upon which all projects are built. Officially known as Scope, Cost & Time, in layman’s terms, we refer to this as Quality, Resources, and Schedule.
Quality refers to value, characteristics, and levels of excellence. Resources are all the financial, materials, equipment, and people required to complete your project, and Schedule reflects the tasks and events that occur over time, from start to finish of your project. At any given time, your project is enveloped within the iron triangle boundaries of Quality, Resources, and Schedule. A great project manager understands which are your top priorities, and knows how to develop the right strategy for striking a strong balance between all three.
Importance of Project Management
Project management, particularly within the construction industry, is an undeniably important and inseparable part of every project. By hiring a skilled project manager, homeowners save themselves time, effort, money, and having to come up with resolutions and fixes to the myriad of daily operational challenges that come with complex projects. An improperly managed project can lead to scheduling delays, indirect and direct financial losses, and structurally unsound homes. This unappealing result can have long-lasting and negative effects on a family’s financial and emotional well-being. However, a skilled project manager manages the schedules, resources & quality so you don’t have to. Whether it’s controlling the expenditures, coordination of resources & materials, managing problems, or making the most of the schedule, this position is essential to ensuring success in your project. Consider this function carefully, as an experienced professional can make a significant difference in the outcomes you’re looking for. Clients with greater availability and desire for increased involvement may want to make regular visits to the construction site and engage with the project manager during construction. Others prefer actively participating in the initial design phases while remaining more hands-off after that. Whatever your preference, we understand and we can find the best options to work together that meet your engagement requirements.
