Leading organisations across sectors and geographic borders have been steadily embracing project management as a means of controlling spending and improving project results. These, and other desirable outcomes have been achieved through the application of project management methodologies, standards, and maturity models, which has understandably been embraced by many contemporary organisations.
Project managers of course are an integral part of delivering successful projects, and as such, have many responsibilities to discharge throughout a project’s lifecycle.
Create a visual presentation describing the application of effective project management processes, methodologies and knowledge areas. Describe how project management relates to project success/failure and the possible consequences when project management practices are not effectively implemented in projects.
Your presentation will contain 6 – 10 slides using a technology of your choice (e.g. MS PowerPoint or similar). Please follow the presentation guidelines attached as a PDF to this assessment brief.
