Project management is a super ordinated term, which encompasses the key operations of initiation, planning, monitoring, controlling, communicating, and closing out costs and schedules. These operations need to be unified and managed across all departments across the whole supply chain to enable the company to maintain oversight and scale. The prerequisite for this unification is an environment, which enables the consolidation and management of information and tasks across the strategic, tactical, and operational levels.
Consolidating and managing tasks for all management levels in one platform and working together in one place is hardly possible for any company. Commonly multiple systems need to be employed and integrated. But integrating multiple systems to improve communication and information exchange is not easy, especially in multinational companies, where different standards and working cultures need to be mapped and integrated.
