Integrated Project Management

Traditional buildings management and construction systems are almost obsolete nowadays, and most large and small projects are being managed integrated. This management is divided into two parts: strategic management – responsible for policy making and strategy clarification- and project management which is responsible for managing project implementation. Due to the complexity of projects, project management today is based on international standards and modern and modern decision-making tools.

According to the Project Management Association (PMI) definition, project management is the use of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques for project activities to meet project needs and is the personal project manager responsible for accomplishing project goals. It has provided the standard PMBOK forum that is today the project management reference in many organizations and companies around the world. This standard introduces 49 processes for project management that are sufficient to manage any type of project.

Project management processes are divided into five groups: beginning, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and ending according to their conceptual sequence. The standard also divides processes into ten different categories based on their areas of knowledge, including: 1) Integrity management 2) Spatial management 3) Time management 4) Cost management 5) Quality management 6) Human resource management 7) Communication management 8) Risk Management 9) Logistics Management and 10) Project Stakeholder Management. By integrating project management literature, this standard provides guidelines for managing individual projects around the world.
