As a self-employed construction specialist and a former employee at the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business, Wilmon Gosline has extensive experience planning and executing projects successfully, from installing electrical systems to assisting professors with class organization. Project management skills have always been crucial in the business world; "time is money," as the old adage goes, and completing a project on schedule prevents costly delays or incompletion. Like many professionals, Wilmon Gosline follows a simple process that creates the environment for success. The first step in the project management procedure is the descriptive phase, in which every party with an interest in the final result comes together to establish what the project will entail. Next, the individuals responsible for managing the project should make a plan for every aspect of the enterprise, deciding how long each aspect of the objective will take to accomplish and allocating resources appropriately. After finishing the planning process, the project is put into motion and the individuals responsible for specific goals begin to work toward them. The manager of the project should concurrently seek to provide leadership throughout the execution process by overseeing the work being completed. By following these guidelines, projects are given the best chance for a favorable outcome, and project managers will do well to focus their efforts on creating a streamlined process that emphasizes distinct planning and definitional phases as well as time for working and providing oversight.
