Courses in Project Management Methods


What are Management Methods?

All organisations undertake activities at a strategic perspective to set organisational objectives, and at an operational level to achieve the organisation's mission via delivery of products and services to its clients. There is also a tactical perspective which is the interface between the strategic and operational perspectives.

The tactical perspective acknowledges organisational objectives, and established initiatives to deliver the required changes into the operational perspective.

Activity within the tactical perspective can be organised into three management layers:

  • Projects are the means by which organisations develop new products or processes, and deliver organisational change.
  • Where there are synergies between projects, or where a broad-brush change is to be delivered, many organisations group projects into programmes to ensure more effective control.
  • Portfolios represent the totality of an organisation’s investment (or segment thereof) on changes required to achieve its strategic objectives.

For each of these levels of management, there are defined management methods which describe what activities should be undertaken at that level, and by whom and when, to achieve success.
