What is Project Management?

The term "Project Management" indicates different things to different people. At Roeder Consulting project management is the holistic set of technical, business, and interpersonal skills required to get project work done. Project work is temporary in nature, typically with constraints such as a set timeline, budget or scope. Most project management firms focus on the technical aspects of project management: software programs, processes, documentation, and so on. Roeder Consulting, instead, focuses on people. We are leading the industry to adopt a balanced approach to project management and organizational change that harmonizes business acumen, change-specific interpersonal skills, and technical processes and templates. We call our approach A Sixth Sense for Project Management® and it's changing the way the world thinks about project management.
