Project management tools

Procurement Project Management is a structured process that is used to define, plan, implement, control and transition an activity from a current to a future state.


Project Management is derived from the realisation a project needs to be carried out.  This realisation could be generated from a macro or a micro factor.


The management of the procurement project requires a range of skills and competencies, knowledge, processes, methods and clearly outlined objectives, if the outcome is to be as desired and in accordance with stakeholders ’ needs.


Project Management incorporates the understanding of the required outcomes, being able to communicate effectively, being aware of associated budgetary constraints as well challenges associated with people and resources. Technical aspects and team management are also of key importance.


Project Management is an all-encompassing activity which requires careful planning from procurement professionals with a high level of business acumen to ensure the end goal is achieved.
