1st Project Management Congress in Sharjah

Experts call for implementation of project management to survive financial meltdown

For organizations to survive the financial meltdown they must adopt the nine knowledge areas of project management to enable them to do different things with different tools at the right time.

This was the assessment made by Dr. Rashid Alleem on the eve of the 1st Project Management Congress in Sharjah which will be held on April 20 and 21 at the Radisson Hotel.

Project management has grown into a vital tool for success in recent years. Driven by recent business trends such as fewer management layers, greater flexibility, and more project-based work, project management has abandoned its historic homes in the construction, engineering and aerospace industries to transform the service, financial, computer, and general management sectors.

According to Mazim E.A. Abusin, a National Advisor of Project Management in the public sector and heading the Project Management Office at the Council of Ministers of Government of Sudan, the Project Management Institute estimates that the world spends nearly $10 trillion (US) of the world’s $40.7 trillion gross product on projects. In the UK alone, more than £250 billion is spent on projects every year.

Abusin will be one of the guest speakers at the congress being organized by the Alleem Knowledge Center (AKC) founded by Dr. Alleem in 2001. Dr. Alleem is concurrently the Director General of the Hamriyah Free Zone Authority and Sharjah Department of Seaports and Customs.

“Globalization and increased competition are causing increased demand for project management. This means knowing what is wanted, what inputs are required to get there, what processes must be performed, and in what order,” Dr. Aleem explained.

The event comes after the highly successful staging of the 1st Sustainable Development Congress held last February 22 and 23 organized by AKV.
Dr. Alleem added: “I personally feel that the recent crisis in the world economy is taking Project Management to a new level. Project management is evolving. The fundamental principles are fairly stable, but the knowledge of how to apply them continues to evolve.

The nine knowledge areas of project management are: Integration Management, Scope Management, Time Management, Cost Management, Quality Management, Human Resource Management, Communications Management, Risk Management, and Procurement Management.
