Regardless of the functional areas in which the eye falls, the working world in technically oriented companies consists largely of projects and the associated project management.
There are projects in all areas of the company like sand on the sea.
You deal with organizational, information technology, technical or commercial problem solutions. Projects in the technical areas include the development of a new component, the introduction of a new production line or the construction of a new test track for commercial vehicles at a truck manufacturer.
In addition to internal projects, depending on the industry, there may be more external projects (customer projects).
Mechanical engineering and plant engineering companies, for example, handle a large number of customer projects every year.
Projects can be characterized as highly complex tasks.
Usually all or at least many departments and areas of the company work on project management.
Often even other companies such as suppliers and service providers have to be involved in order to shoulder the project.
Often these are also key projects.
They have a significant impact on a company’s future earnings and cost situation. Project management must therefore be implemented quickly, on time, with high quality and within the given budget.
The professionalism of the project management decides whether and how this project succeeds.
If smaller projects can be completed and managed in addition to day-to-day business, this is not possible with the complex projects described.
