COMMENTS AND CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM 2
Awesome article! Project management plays a significant contribution in attaining
company profitability and helps in achieving the long term strategies of an organization. When a
company acknowledges innovation, new projects are launched by the company through project
management, implementation, and management of time, cost, and the quality of the project.
Other processes that can be initiated include project scope administration and project
procurement management. The author outlines clearly that the above processes are used to
control complicated tasks and ensure that all principles of management, teamwork, leadership,
specialized knowledge and competencies, culture and demographics, risk management,
performance measurement, cost and budget are taken into consideration in order to yield the
expected project results. I found this part of the article to be in line with Kerzner’s (2013) study
of project management.
The presenter provides an in depth review on how various approaches have been used to
describe the life cycle of project management. For instance, the article highlights clearly that the

traditional approach emphasizes on the economic environment and technological advancement
(Schwalbe, 2015). The project managers should be dynamic and flexible in order to adapt to
these changes. Secondly, the extreme and Emertxe approaches state that the managers may not
be in a position to complete the projects in similar working condition (Verzuh, 2015). The
managers have to formulate a goal on which they must have a solution for extreme project
management and vice versa for Emertxe project management. The project manager handling the
extreme project management must be innovative enough. According to Emertxe approach, the
project manager should advance technologically by opening websites for searching business
values (Schwalbe, 2015). Lastly, the agile approach is used to deal with complex projects where
the goals are known but the solutions are difficult to find.
It can be concluded that, in order to see the project to completion within the stipulated
time and within allocated budget, the project manager should be equipped with appropriate
skills. This will ensure that the project manager recognizes the project requirement, establishes
clear and achievable level that will be within project’s quality, time and cost, stakeholder
management and be able to control risks that may affect the project (Turner, 2014).
