The Juggler | Demystifying Project Management


When you hear ‘Project Management’, what comes to mind? You probably think it is a complicated practice which needs sophisticated tools and processes in order to accomplish. You probably wouldn’t think of it simply as a way of thinking or an approach to daily tasks. And you probably wouldn’t think of it as juggling. Yes, juggling.

Juggling Too Many Projects?

Project management is simply about balancing resources, time, quality and objectives to achieve a specific goal. It is about knowing which projects to pursue and which ones not to, based on their overall benefit to the business. It is about keeping your finger on the pulse of a project to know when you need to change plans or drop the project altogether.
