Why Is Project Management Is Considered As An Important Management Discipline

Imagine yourself going north for about 100 kilometres of distance in a dark night!


You know the direction and the distance to be traveled (i.e. the final outcome of the project). What you do not know is the path, preparation, terrain, obstacles, conditions and more.


Would it not help our journey if we study more, plan for the travel and prepare for our journey before we begin the journey? And keep in mind, we may also have to make course corrections during our entire journey! This could be called as project management! In other words, a systematic approach to meet the project outcome.


Without a plan and preparation, we may not reach the desired destination or may not reach in time or reach with injuries or may never reach at all!


In project management terms, our project may not complete in time and under budget! Alternatively you could say, our project may not meet the defined objectives!


Real World Implementation Notes:

The outcome of any project is generally defined at a high level.


Three key challenges before the project begin;


  1. It takes a lot of time to define every detail of the outcome of the project,
  2. It is difficult to define the details and
  3. The organization may not have the subject matter expertise.

So, most of the project would begin without much details about the outcome! As the project progresses, the mystery unfolds.


Without a systematic approach, these projects would not complete as desired.


Hence, project management has gained importance in recent years as separate management discipline.


The high level project processes as below:


  • Understand the objective (define)
  • Plan (detail) how to meet objective
  • Executing the plan (doing it)
  • Making course corrections (controlling)

Meeting the project objective (handover and close)

Time is an Invention: “Science of Self-Discipline - The Willpower, Mental Toughness, and Self-Control to Resist Temptation and Achieve Your Goal” by Peter Hollins
The Science of Self-Discipline: The Willpower, Mental Toughness, and Self-Control to Resist Temptation and Achieve Your Goals - Peter Hollins

“Motivation and self-discipline are nice to have. Motivation, however, is often emotional and temporary, while self-discipline can be exhausted. But having solid habits will deliver the same results with far less pain and suffering. Habits have been shown to take around 66 days to form, so all you need to do is commit to small actions (mini habits) for that amount of time.”

In “Science of Self-Discipline - The Willpower, Mental Toughness, and Self-Control to Resist Temptation and Achieve Your Goal” by Peter Hollins

People in this country, Portugal, - and maybe in others too, but I've not really lived elsewhere - work too hard, for too many hours, and retire (in general) too late. Too many of us have accepted the myth, or have had no choice but to accept it, that self-discipline and unremitting effort is good for ourselves, our families, the economy - but as so many of us work in jobs that actually don't matter very much, or at all, that can't be true. If no one worked in PR, or banking, or accountancy, the world would have a problem, but it wouldn't stop spinning on its axis.

Six Sigma Training in Green & Black Belt Certification

Six sigma is a process to manufacture the product in a manufacturing company. Six Sigma training is designed to set of tools and techniques and it helps to improve the process in an organization. The primary goal of six sigma training and certification is invalidating the individuals who process the skills to identify the errors or defects in business.

Some company offers a board range of six sigma training and certification options and specifically designed to focus theses concern in the service industries.


Six sigma training in black and green belt:


Who are rolling out a six sigma related changes will offer in black belt training members as a way to bring everyone on board and provide a basic literacy regarding the process and jargon associated with six sigma in any company. Aspiring leader and interested in long-term application and development in six sigma and lean six sigma strategies. Green belt six sigma training is most common in companies.  Mostly professional pursuing green belt training in three years of full-time work not counting internship in the process will be related to processing improvement. In coursework, professionals will need to pass the 100 questions in multiple choice exams. Green belt training is varying from institution to another institution but the depth of analyzing the case of study to demonstrate six sigma tools and processes.

Improve the Business Process Through Lean Six Sigma

Lean six sigma is a methodology in which removing the waste by an effective group. Also, it is used for decrease the variation.  Lean six sigma is emerged with lean manufacturing or lean enterprise to reduce the eight kind of waste, which are as follows:  defects, overproduction, waiting, non-utilized talent, transportation, inventory, motion, and extra-processing. This process is not only to reduce the amount of waste, the cultural change of overall organization also, takes framework from this process. Define, measure, analyze, improve, control, recognize and standardize are the tools for six sigma respectively. Kanban, error proofing, productive maintenance, reduce lot sizes, line balancing, schedule leveling, visual management, kaizen, value stream process mapping, set up time reduction and 5S are the tools needed for lean.


kinds of waste in lean six sigma:


  • Waste can be categorized as follows:
  • Wait time waste or idle time waste, which is product creation time.
  • The product waste or delivery waste, which is the time to get the product.
  • Waste in the work.
  • Inventory and operations take time for it and do not make money.
  • Extra-processing waste also called as waste in the work.
  • Waste in operations also referred to motion waste.
  • Defect waste or rejected parts waste, which are the particular pieces can be thrown out or reworked.
  • The person who is untrained for the work will be pressured to try the work and forced to complete the work can be called as non-utilized talent waste. This is a final waste.

benefits of using lean six sigma:


The benefits of lean six sigma are boundless. The everyday competition will grow up. The organization faces rising costs. Lean six sigma will solve these problems and will improve the business in the following ways:


  • It improves efficiency and effectiveness.
  • It will increase the company profit.
  • Helps for employees to develop their knowledge.
  • A small, medium, large businesses use this lean six sigma.
  • The smaller organization will grow up to the large organization in few years. Because smaller organization have fewer people for work.
  • It reduces the cost and increases the revenue.
  • It approaches people in a positive way.
  • Decreases the cost.

Lean six sigma will reduce the organization’s cost by removing the waste in which we get from the production process. Problems may occur on during the process. This may be solved by lean six sigma. The lean six sigma determines lean and six sigma to the simple cost of production. Through this process we can speed up the time for production, improve our product quality, it gives the confidence to stay competitive, and one more important factor is we can save money by this method. Six Sigma will identify the kind of waste, and lean will be concentrated on reducing the waste with low price. Lean and six sigma combination will be more helpful for businesses. Both are aimed to solve the solution and save some money.
