Project management growth is a positive effect that may follow after company’s development (growth of company’s business scale, expansion of their production, services, trade, etc). Project management growth in the company can be caused by development of their business standards so they get ready to accomplish projects of a greater scale – with higher costs, greater goals, more of workers engaged, better technologies implemented and materials acquired, etc. There are different project management growth concepts and definitions, but they all are similar in their core principles – it is important not loose controls over a growing project, as far as the larger projects grow, the deeper and wider PM knowledge they require to be managed. The factors are as follows:
- It is necessary for PM to master some more advanced methods of composing project schedules, as they operate with a bigger number of employees, equipment and tasks, so plain timetables are not always sufficient here, but the project manager should know how to coordinate schedules of multiple interrelated units, as well as how to compress the schedules, etc;
- The control over the project costs and budget needs to become more complicated and profound because larger amounts of money are engaged now and it is easier to get significant financial overruns through a big number of small financial leaks that stay in some “blind” spots. It is necessary to elaborate all-embracing growth strategy to cover different areas of gradual transition from managing small projects to bigger ones.
