Abstract

Best-in-class organizations are adopting a project management approach to manage their business operations. As organizations use increasingly complex processes to procure, produce, and distribute supplies or services, traditional management approaches are not sufficient. This presentation provides an overview of project management as it relates to a supply professional’s job. A conceptual overview of project management with a focus on understanding today’s new supply environment, the advantages of using a project management methodology, understanding the characteristics of a project, the organizing options for projects, and the role of the project sponsor, project manager, project team and project stakeholders will be discussed.
