A Perfect Combo: Project and Process Management
Project management and process management are often considered two separate management strategies. However, isn’t it possible that one could benefit the other?
Let’s take a closer look.
A project is a unique process aimed at a certain outcome; it is temporary, and ends as soon as the objective is accomplished. The most important part of a project is its plan, and therefore project management can be defined as organizing and executing this plan aimed at certain business results.
Meanwhile, process management is all about execution. It is not temporary, because processes are meant to be repeatable. That is to say, they have a certain predefined structure and steps, which are repeated in each process instance. Process management implies monitoring, optimization and improvement of business processes.
