This article is a response to message received as feedback on the following article: Project Management Theory and Practice! by the author.
The message starts with: “Hello, my name is Debbie Schwiller (not the real name) and I am a student at A. State University. I am doing a Professional Project for a course on the relation of the Program Management Theory and Practice in Coordinating and Organizing Events. I was wondering if there was any information that you think would be viable to my research.
My response was sent in different shape and words to the student by email, but I thought it will beneficial for other students who are interested in Project Management theories and practice. First: My understanding for the above was: I understand from your words, that you want to make a paper or presentation for a course, about the relationship between PM theory and Practice in any area of coordinating or organizing events.
Second: Any information is a wide area on PM Theory and Practice. But to tell you that you have to deal with Management Theory in general back from Early times up from traditional theories of Top to Bottom through semi-participation human theories, and motion theories, to Z theory which calls for participation of all workers including the managers in a form of Bottom-up hierarchy of command. Saying this you have to be aware of review the literature on the topic, and differentiate between theory as guidelines to work, and implementation of that theory in action, where people differ in their special areas and their chain of command.
PM now is something else, in addition to managers’ specialties you have to be as a good PM, having a license to practice PM job. And you may have different background, in humanities or engineering. Because having a license as PM specialist, gives you the rules of PM in any event, business, family projects or army, or industry or even consultation firm, all have to begin with leadership or designer in the person of PM. The tasks of any project involve both theory and practice, where the theory of Management begins with goals, policy drawing, capacity of assessments, and implication.
The role of PM in your case is to distinguish professional practices can be summarized in the following six points in any event you are involved as a Professional Project Manager:
1. Respected as a leader and as an individual in all aspects of the work environment.
2. Expertise in planning, facilitation, controlling, negotiation, metrics, continuous improvement, and full project/product life cycle.
3. Committed to excellent customer service; understanding internal and external customer needs and responding quickly and efficiently to maintain excellent customer relations.
4. Project management and leadership applying LEAN/Six Sigma techniques to critical business processes driving continuous improvement and forward thinking across the complete process.
5. Able to lead and facilitate cross-functional project teams on a global scale.
6. Apply direct operations of the project, analyzing workflow, allocating resources, establishing priorities, developing standards and setting deadlines.
In addition Project Manager should have skills, for example, Certified Project Management Professional (PMP) from the Project Management Institute (PMI), Certificate of Education in Project Management for IT Professionals and technological internet skills of Oracle, Networking, Primavera P6, Project, Visio, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Windows, Lotus Notes, and Outlook. And finally measurement design skills for evaluation of team members in any benchmarking (BM) or best practices (BP) studies. I hope this will satisfy the purpose of your course paper. (632 words)
