Project Management and Development

Hits: 27

By Veerk Kartik

Anyone who has ever worked on a project will agree that making a project succeed is no simple task. The difficulties manifest themselves in delays, budget over-runs, inadequate results, dissatisfied customers, high stress among the project team and other undesirable outcomes.
Dividing a project into phases makes it possible to lead it in the best possible direction. Through this organisation into phases, the total work load of a project is divided into smaller components, thus making it easier to monitor.

The choice for a particular type of project largely determines its results. For example, a research and development project delivers a report that examines the technological feasibility of an application. A project in which a prototype is developed delivers all of the functionalities of an application, but they need not be suitable for use in a particular context. A project that delivers a working product must also consider matters of maintenance, instructions and the operational management of the application.


It is very important that all parties that are involved in the project are able to collaborate during the definition phase, particularly the end users who will be using the project result. The fact that end users are often not the ones that order the project perhaps explains why they are often ignored.
The degree of difficulty and associated challenges with these tasks will vary from project to project.

Project management preparation is the phenomenon where Project managers begin a translation project by gaining full understanding of the project scope, based on input and requests from the client. They then refine project requirements to ensure that they are accurate. Basically, translation project managers must map out exactly how the work will be executed.

Once the project manager has determined and verified the project scope, timeline and budget, the next major task is identifying staff resources that are scaled to the size and delivery date of the project. The project manager must look at the project from a monetary perspective in light of scope, time and budget. The project manager's main goal is to optimize allocation and implementation of staff resources to achieve budget and delivery date goals in the most cost-effective manner. On new projects, the project manager may work with vendor management to find the right resources.
