Project management consulting
Project management is a systematic approach to planning, organizing, implementing and monitoring projects – with the aim of achieving defined goals within a specified time and resource framework. The successful implementation of projects requires effective coordination of tasks, resources and team members in order to minimize risks, maximize efficiency and ensure transparent communication. Project implementation comprises various phases. Initiation, planning, implementation, monitoring and completion. A structured approach, supported by proven methods and tools, is crucial. The choice between a classic, agile or hybrid approach depends on the specific requirements of the project.
In classic project management, detailed project planning takes place at the beginning, with a fixed structure and limited changes during the course of the project. The focus is on the careful definition of requirements, sequential implementation of tasks and strict adherence to schedules.
Agile project management, on the other hand, focuses on flexibility through iterative development and continuous adaptation. Teamwork, customer orientation and rapid response to change are emphasized. Common agile methods such as Scrum and Kanban promote short development cycles, regular feedback and continuous adaptation to customer needs.
Hybrid project management combines elements of classic and agile project management in order to utilize the advantages of both approaches. It allows for initial detailed planning while maintaining flexibility for adjustments during the course of the project. It enables a faster response to changes without losing the structure and control of the classic approach.
