Project Management Standards
Today organizations realize the importance of the need for project management standards.
It is not enough to implement a project management methodology, it is also equally important
to follow universal project management standards. However, there is nothing called universal
project management standard. What we can talk of is widely accepted project management standards.
What is the need for such project management standards anyway? Why do we need such a standard?
Today, all the businesses attain global dimension easily with the help of the internet.
Once a business goes online, it is open to the global market so there is a lot of cross transfer of
information from one system to the other across the globe, which emphasizes the need for global project management standards.
If our system needs to be recognized and accepted internationally,
then we must go for some kind of project management standards. If each company
creates its own project management methodology then when we need to upgrade the system or make changes,
we will be dependent on the company that was responsible for developing our application. This
should not be the case; if we make use of a set of universally followed standards in our
project management we can easily avoid this problem.
When international project management standards are followed,
we will be able to take over a project at any stage and complete it
successfully without being dependent on the original development team. Organizations are moving towards such
independence in terms of project management. Once this is achieved, they will no more be limited to a
single service provider, besides that this will also ensure uniformity, which is essential for increasing
the compatibility of your application or online system. By following global project management standards,
we can also ensure a high level of quality standards not only in project management but also with the entire
project. This will remove all the elements of uncertainty and increase overall efficiency. By following
universal project management standards, we will be able to create stable systems that are capable of
functioning across a wide range of platforms. The systems we create will no more be limited to a single
platform or single technology environment.
The quality and the strength of the system can be judged only by judging its stability
while working with different platforms. Today the need for such stable systems is on the
increase because we do not have to develop new applications and systems from scratch. We can save a
considerable amount of time, money and energy by following global project management standards. When we follow
global project management standards, we will have solutions to all types of
problems and the system's down time will be reduced considerably.
There are many advantages in coming up with universal project management standards and in
following project management standards that are most widely accepted. It will make our
application or system more widely usable across multiple platforms. Such systems will also be
reusable and once we succeed in creating reusable systems we can save a lot of money for the organization.
