Project Planning and Control Techniques

Project Planning and Control Techniques

Introduction to Project Management:
Project management offers a structured approach to managing projects. The purpose of this book is to outline the latest planning and control techniques used by industry, commerce, sport, and domestic projects, and particularly those used by the project planning software and referred to in the Project Management Institute's (PMI) project management body of knowledge (PMBOK), and the Association ofProject Manager's (APM) body of knowledge (bok).
As the use of projects becomes more pervasive, so more managers are entering the field of project management. Their success will be helped by their ability to develop a fully integrated information and control system to plan, instruct, monitor and control large amounts of data, quickly and accurately to facilitate the problem-solving and decision-making process. 

To achieve these goals the project manager needs a comprehensive toolkit - as a plumber works with a bag of tools, so the project manager works with a computer producing organization charts, work breakdown structures, bar charts, resource histograms, and cash-flow statements.

What are different techniques of project planning and control?

The four most useful techniques for project planning are four techniques that complement each other and, when used together, provide the best chance of covering every aspect of the project. These are Brainstorming, Cause and Effect Diagrams, Critical Path Analysis, and Gantt Charts.
