Project Management Institute: Delivering through effective project management

Delivering through effective project management

This Case Study discusses the role of the Project Management Institute in promoting effective project management. It examines the benefits of project management to business and as a career option and explains how projects are run.

As a result of reading this Case Study, students should be able to:

  • Explain the role of a Project Manager
  • Understand the different phases of a project
  • Discuss the role of industry bodies such as PMI


Have you ever considered the value that effective project management brings to a business? Or considered it as a career?

Why project management matters

Effective project management is the difference between success and failure.

The role of the project manager

Most commonly, we refer to project managers as those who lead and direct project teams on a day-to-day basis.

The project in action

Whatever the project, management of that project will more or less follow the same steps.

The role of PMI

Learning and development are crucial parts of a career.


Project management skills are a valuable and necessary asset in today’s atmosphere, because at its core, project management is about delivering results, while doing more with less and preventing problems that waste time and resources.
