Projects Help Small Businesses Grow

When you hear the term “project management,” does it conjure up a visual of huge projects that take hundreds of people, lots of money, and a good bit of time to complete?

That’s what a lot of people see.

But the reality is, most projects are much smaller than those we imagine. Most small business owners like you and me juggle tons of projects at any given time.

Does that surprise you?

You may not think of the things that you do as projects, but consider this list for a moment.

  • Remodel your website
  • Develop a new marketing campaign
  • Create a new product offering
  • Launch a new product or service
  • Hire an employee
  • Coordinate a joint venture
  • Set up an affiliate program
  • Define business systems and processes
  • Plan a newsletter
  • Deliver client services
  • Create a content strategy

Any of those sound familiar to you?

These are just a few of the projects you might be involved in at any point in time.

And, most likely, you’re juggling multiple projects at the same time – on top of being the CEO of your business. Ugh!?!

One thing is for sure.

If you don’t have a project manager on your team, then the project manager is you!

That means you have to coordinate team members and manage deliverables for multiple items all at once.

And the problem with that is things can fall through the cracks.

It’s simply impossible for you to manage multiple projects without adequate project management skills to help you maintain your sanity during the chaos.

How would you answer the following statements?

  • My projects get done on time
  • My projects make money
  •  I track work as it gets done
  • I monitor how much money and time is being spent during a project
  • Every member of my project team knows what they need to do and when it must be done

If you answered no to any of these items, it’s time for you to take a serious look at how project management can help your small business.
