Project management is a carefully planned & organized effort to accomplish a specific one-time objective, for example, constructing a hotel or implementing a major new F&B system. Project management includes developing a project plan, which involves defining & confirming the project goals & objectives, identifying tasks & how goals will be achieved, quantifying the resources needed, & determining budgets and timelines for completion. It also includes managing the implementation of the project plan, along with operating regular ‘controls’ to ensure that there is accurate & objective information on ‘performance’ relative to the plan, and the mechanisms to implement recovery actions where necessary.
