Project management is part of management science. A project is defined as a task that has a specific purpose of producing a unique product, outcome, or service. It is conducted under a framework of content, time and budget. In order for a project to succeed, it is necessary to apply knowledge, tools, management methods, personal skills and more.
A project management office or project management company provide project management services to companies and organizations in the most professional manner, using innovative and advanced management methodologies and techniques.
When it comes to multiple projects within a company, the project management office might also set up an internal “management and supervision” body in charge of managing, supervising and monitoring all the company’s projects and supporting its project managers.
A project management office also provides in-house training for novice and advanced project managers or anyone involved in or affected by the project. The training is based on project management methodologies, software, risk management and more.
