Clients often want to know why project management is so important. It’s easy enough for them since they are on the receiving end of the whole ordeal and may not particularly understand why, without proper project management, their request can fail substantially. Not only that, but they may feel like project management isn’t that heavy of a task that they themselves can’t handle.
It can look like just another added cost, but the thing about project management is that it is the main way to know how to reach the deadline without stressing and overworking your entire teams.
Especially when it comes to research and development, otherwise known as R&D. R&D projects can be extensive and also come with certain standards that must be fulfilled. Project management is what tells the entire team what should be complete and by when. Imagining if you didn’t fully analyse the requirements of your client and may have underestimated some functionality. Something as easy as a login and password system can take a while to implement when you think of the database that needs to be maintained as well as the permitted access levels in order to achieve the desired level of confidentiality, availability and functionality as well.
Acute 360 offers your R&D team an iterative way to perform project management making your job a lot easier to accomplish. Overhead managers may seem like they get in the way, but when you have your hands full of your own work, it’s hard to also go through the various conference meetings as well as dealing with the issues of the team and of any other concerned department that is a part of the whole project. Things like marketing, developing and quality control each have different needs that need to be looked into.
