Part 9: Appendixes > Project Management Versus Other Management Methodologies

Project Management Versus Other Management Methodologies

There are many strategies within organizations for getting the work done. In practice, general management can be broken down into four distinct approaches: strategic, operations, crisis, and project. In order to understand how project management fits as a function within an organization, it is important to define and differentiate each approach and area of focus. Along with a description of each management methodology, there is a metaphor for describing each method. If various management techniques are considered to get from point A to point B, a mode of transportation serves well as a descriptor of each management style.

Strategic management implements the overall strategic plan and direction for the on-going work of the organization. It is for the purpose of proactively achieving a long-range vision or mission to be fulfilled. It also addresses the overall business strategy and how to deliver it. Mostly performed at an executive or high level of the organization, you can remember strategic management as a Lear jet screaming across the sky.
