Project Management Goals

Every project should have a specific target or targets, and each target should be defined for all the team members in the project.

In any project, we will have the following element:

• Money

• Manpower

• Machines

The target of project management is to use the above elements to achieve the project with less cost and high quality. Therefore, every job in the project must manage one or more of the available resources and optimize the use of the resources in order to reduce the losses and achieve the project target within the time constraint, cost, and quality.

Based on the PMP guide, project management is characterized by multiple areas or topics that must be managed at the same time. These topics are as follows:

1. Project integration management

2. Project scope management

3. Project time management

4. Project cost management

5. Quality management

6. Human resource management

7. Communication management

8. Procurement management

9. Risk management

Based on Kotter, J. P (1996), there is a good differentiation between the management and leader. Management is a set of processes that can keep a complicated system of people and technology running smoothly. The most important aspects of management include planning, budgeting, organizing, staffing, controlling, and problem solving. Leadership is a set of processes that creates organization or adapts to significantly changing circumstances. Leadership defines what the future should look like, aligns people with that vision, and inspires them to make it happen despite the obstacles.
