Program and Project Development

When I was in the military it was 'plan the plan, practice the plan and execute for success with or without Murphy.' Before project management became an academically accredited phenomenon, we at NCDCS were executing from experience and common sense.

For eons, people have been planning projects. With civilization, there are always projects to get completed: buildings to build, roads to pave, and IT infrastructure to implement. It often seems difficult to organize resources and control cost without the benefit of today's project tools and methodologies, yet NCDCS has found that the preeminent tools in project management start with experience, superb communication skills and common sense. Frankly, we have seen that even with the best software available on the market, it comes down to the interpersonal skills of the individual managing the project.

The evolution of techniques for cost control, timeline development, resource procurement and management, and risk management are applicable to the widest range of projects. These technical skills are fundamental to a set of management techniques now known as "project management," which is the application of knowledge, skills, and communication tools implemented through a range of activities enabling the requirements of the particular project to be cost effectively concluded. Knowledge and practices for project management are best described in terms of their component processes. These components can be placed into five main groups:

- Initiating, Planning, Executing, Controlling and Closing.
