The Data Standard

The importance of project management? with Christine Abanilla
Christine Abanilla, Project Manager, Enterprise Engineering at NBCUniversal sits down with TDS to discuss the importance of project management.

Episode Summary

Whether you are organizing a training session for your colleagues or planning to construct a huge engineering plan, project management will help you achieve what you need to do. Project management is the way we apply knowledge and processes to work in order to complete that work in the smoothest way possible. Ultimately, we are using tools, methods, skills, techniques, and the experience of the team to achieve the objectives set for the work. Projects have a clear goal, which means we can plan how to get there and work through a structured plan to ensure that the goals are achieved. Any complex project that a company undertakes has a better chance of achieving its goal, vision, and the desired results if the team executing the project employs both the science and art of project management. The science you can learn and apply because there are many courses, books, tools, techniques, and software packages out there that help you understand how to manage your project from a methodological perspective. Learning the art of project management on the other hand is a different story because it takes experience to know what you need to do when you need to do it, and how much of it to apply to a given situation.
