Kogon, Blakemore, and Wood (2015) note that for many workers in the current business environment, an increasing amount of time is spent working on or leading projects. This assignment is intended to help you understand the primary elements of the project management process, how you can choose a project management methodology that will be the best fit for your project, and the skills you will need to be a successful project leader. In your readings and videos for this unit, as well as personal experience for many of you, you have discovered that there are many variables to successfully managing a project. The project management methodology chosen for a project must reflect the organization’s requirements to ensure success. Included in these variables are the size and complexity of the project, the process used to manage a project, and the skills that are needed to successfully complete the project.
For this 4- to 6-page APA-compliant paper (not including title and reference pages) respond to the following:
Section 1 – Project Management Overview
- Using your unit readings and videos, and at least two additional sources, which can be from non-scholarly sources, describe the factors that may be used to select a project management methodology.
- Identify at least three project management methodologies that you are most interested in learning more about. These can be from your research or personal experience. Provide an overview of these methodologies, and include but do not limit to:
- Primary use for this methodology
- Types of projects this methodology is best suited to
- Technology support provided
- Formal project management expertise required, or skills needed
- Present an analysis of similarities and differences in these three project management methodologies. As a project leader, completing this type of assessment will help you understand which method you may want to select the next time you lead a project.
