"Is Project Management Difficult?" - is perhaps a "tricky" question and maybe even a "difficult" question to answer. So why did I ask this question? (The reason will become clear when you read on.) One answer to the above question might be, "It all depends ... on the circumstances." Of course, but that doesn't really answer the question either, does it?
You could also ask the question, "Is flying an airplane difficult?" If you asked a pilot, who was well trained and experienced, he would probably say, "No, flying an airplane is not difficult, ... but I don't want to get caught in a thunderstorm with lightning when I am flying!" So sometimes, flying an airplace can even be "difficult" or "challenging" (meaning that it can test someone's abilities; it can demand superior skills to be successful). Or you could ask the question, "Is playing tennis difficult?" Well, if you asked someone like tennis star Roger Federer that question, he might say, "No, tennis is not difficult, but I sure have had some very tough games and I have even lost a few games." Roger might also say, "Some games can be very challenging!" "Whether I win or loose depends on many factors."
So it is with project management, I believe. But why might a trained and experienced pilot say, at first, "No, flying is not difficult, but ..." or why might Roger Federer say, "No, playing tennis is not difficult, but ..." Something, anything (flying an airplane, playing tennis, managing a project, etc.) is less difficult when people have been trained and have the necessary know-how and experience to do the job.
OK, so things are not necessarily difficult if we have been trained how to do them. We need schooling, we need practice, we need studies, we need knowledge, we need help from instructors ... and then finally, we can master or do the task well, or even perfectly. And so it has been my experience that persons can manage projects well when:
These are some of the reasons that we offer Project Management training & coaching: to help persons to be able to manage projects more successfully by providing practical Project Management training and effective Project Management coaching.
