A classic situation: various projects are running in a company in different areas, which present entirely different findings to the management on apparently the same topics. The consequence: there is a great deal of confusion.
There is obviously a planning deficit underlying the “classic” situation described here. It shows that well-functioning project management is indispensable for the success of a company/corporation. This applies both to the inter-departmental coordination of various projects, as the above example shows, and to the individual projects in themselves. Project management should perform three main roles: quality assurance, control of budget and time and coordination at the highest level.
