Project management initiatives adopted by technology major, Cognizant, have borne amazing results in the form of steady improvement in productivity, on-time delivery and cost performance. The company has found that institutionalizing a robust project management framework through initiatives in the areas of process, automation, and human resource management is paying rich dividends.
Managing a large project calls for the project manager taking into account areas and activities that may not offer the comfort of direct visibility. It is here that the experience and expertise of a project manager should be leveraged in order to anticipate and foresee at least some of the unique challenges that may arise during the course of project strategizing and implementation.
Sustainability is soon going to be, if it is not already, a mainstream concern. The reasons for encouraging sustainable development are multifaceted. Global warming, industrial pollutants and the burning of fossil fuels have all been linked to natural disasters such as the 2005 Gulf Coast hurricanes in the United States and other places. The economic impact of such instances—for example, Hurricane Katrina cost $200 billion in Louisiana alone—has spurred many to take retroactive and preventive measures against climate change.
