Project Management

Project management involves all the tools, skills, and knowledge required to deliver a particular product or service. These can range from small-scale assignments such as the development of a software or designing a company website; to larger scale projects such as the construction of buildings or infrastructure.

In contrast to the everyday operations of a business, company projects are concluded upon reaching their goal. They often involve an entire team of experts, a set schedule, a set budget, and standards of quality that workers are expected to meet – all helmed by a project manager or project professional. These people oversee the entire process, using their expertise to engage and motivate team members to meet a project’s goals.

Why Study Project Management?

As technological trends continue to change and disrupt the business world, companies will need to stay agile and adaptive to digital tools, platforms, and practices. Such developments show no signs of slowing down, lending to increasingly high demand for project management professionals – experts who can help businesses successfully navigate, strategize, and transform for a digital-first future.

With projects forming a core part of any business, the talents required to plan, implement, and direct them have kept in high demand; one that’s only risen since the COVID-19 pandemic. As technologies continue evolving, the initiatives to adopt and optimise such tools are also bound grow, paving the way for greater (and increasingly complex) project management opportunities.

Fuelling the need for project managers, however, is the recent impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The uncertainties brought about by national lockdowns had stalled a significant number of industry projects – though with the economy now striding towards recovery, organisations are hauling out more project plans than ever before. Australia currently expects to see an additional 100,000 project management professionals by 2027, with global industry growth expected to rise by a whopping 33%.

However, demand is currently outstripping talent supply, with many organisations are now expecting their workers to take on project management roles without the formal qualifications. On the upside, this bodes abundant employment opportunity for those looking to enter the industry, with annual salaries now sitting at a generous average of $108,122 AUD per year among ICT-focused project managers. With certified training under your belt, you’re also more likely to gain the attention of potential employers.

The industry now additionally has government backing to keep it afloat, with billion-dollar investments made to support new infrastructure programmes – paving the way for hundreds of thousands of new jobs. There’s never been a more opportune time to become a project management professional, particularly in growing industries such as healthcare, social assistance, construction; and professional, scientific, and technical services.

Additionally, enrolling in project management courses can equip you with a broad range of transferrable business skills. These can include a technical knowledge of ICT, finance, and general business management; along with soft skills in communication, leadership, organisation, and adaptability – making you a highly flexible employee. You’re also likely to find work in any industry of your choice, with most sectors in need of project management experts, regardless of their field.
