Project Management: It is Not Just for IT Anymore

Although often equated with the information technology (IT) industry, project management methodologies are applicable across business settings.

Pyramids, cathedrals, railroads and missile projects have at least one thing in common—project management. History is replete with examples of the human drive to plan, organize, coordinate and create.

Today, whether you are a consumer or provider of project management services, the outlook is good. According to a status report by the Project Management Institute (PMI), global economic instability, “has increased pressure on an organization’s bottom line mean[ing] an increased need for project practitioners who can think strategically when executing projects.”

Our firm provides experienced, outside project managers on a local, national and international basis. In and outside of the United States, project managers are used in fields including:

  • Aerospace technology
  • Construction
  • Consumer products
  • Engineering
  • Healthcare
  • Human Resources
  • Information technology
  • Industrial products
  • Life Sciences
  • Non-governmental organizations

Domestic business concerns often operate with partners outside of the United States. As true national boundaries soften, global overlap requires nimble project management at home and abroad.

  • Creates, defines and illustrates scope, process and deliverables
  • Works with your team to manage and deliver on time
