9 Effective ways to meet Project Targets

Planning and Monitoring/Controlling a project is so paramount in meeting Project Targets. In this article we are going to work through ten ways to effectively meet Project Targets. Planning though seemingly a minor phase dictates the direction and sets the pace for the entire project’s success. 

1. Develop aProject Charter Document and get sign-offs. A Project Charter is a high-level document that explains the project requirements, scope, and key deliverables. Production of this document is the number one way to promote project success.

PMP Exams changes August 31st 2011.

PMI (Project Management Institute) is a world class Projet Management authority. PMP Certification Exams changes August 31st 2011

Every five to seven years, the Project Management Institute (PMI) performs a Role Delineation Study to determine authority ("the role"), responsibilities & duties of project managers today. The findings are then used to update the Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam.

In this way, PMI ensures that the PMP Exam is a reflection of what project managers actually do in the field. If PMI didn't regularly go through this process adding new elements and removing old ones, then you would still be tested on outdated methods that were used in the 1980s when the first PMP exam was given.

PMI completed their latest study at the end of 2010. The findings will lead to an update in the PMP Exam on 31 August 2011. What will this imply?

With the onslaught of a new government come May 29th 2011,we hope they will listen to these comments and build a better Project Nigeria during their leadership span of 4years!These comments to me were some of the best.

Have a good read, remember to leave your own comment behind!

1. It's difficult to say; perhaps I shouldn't even comment on this, having never had a go at practising Project Management in Nigeria. I do however know that quality and excellence in both development and delivery are the bed rocks of project management and it is still, …
