Project management is so worn out term that its use usually only describes a general procedure for conducting certain activities. It is not uncommon to hear how people call “project” the most banal office tasks such as direct marketing campaigns or the introduction of telephone lines. For us, the project involves a complex activity that requires the inclusion of important resources that are not available in the institution that is implementing the project. In addition, the project is not an end goal itself, but is carried out in order to fulfill certain objectives. However, this is usually forgotten the very first day after the beginning of the project, and sometimes even earlier. Accordingly, the results of the project cease to follow very quickly and after a few years it is totally unclear what the benefits were gained from it. This is confirmed by a very interesting article published by the Oxford University professor Bent Flyvbjerg (What You Should Know About megaprojects and Why: An Overview), in which it was inconsolably concluded that people in the last 70 years did not become nothing more effective in managing large projects – in other words, too much is taken on the assessment, and not enough on previous experience.
To declare that we are among the best in the field of project management would expose us to reasonable doubt. What we can say for ourselves is that the we approach projects consciously, because we are trained to observe them as our own responsibility. Everything else is a matter of technique, negotiation, legal support and insurance of the material risks.
