Abstract

Project management is focused on planning, executing, monitoring and controlling of all aspects of a project, defined as a temporary effort to carry out a unique result, in order to achieve the targets set under the criteria of time, quality and cost restrictions. In a small or medium-sized organization focused on this type of activity, the integration of the various factors involved in the project life cycle is needed. A roadmap developed as a set of guidelines for effective project management, tailored to this type of organizations but based on the existing sets of best practices and methodological standards (traditionally oriented to huge corporations), is pursued in this work through a comprehensive-qualitative analysis added to an interview approach.
