Topic Description:
 
Project Management has been a subject of debate, research, experimentation and evolution since 1950. There are diverse theories, proven and established, of managing projects in different ways for different domains viz retail, infrastructure, manufacturing, information technology (IT), etc. The focus of discussion here is restricted to IT projects. With an ever changing nature of project execution models there is an inherent need for innovative project management models providing the best fit for the prevalent execution model. In realizing this goal, complexity of project management has compounded over the 
years. As with evolution of all domains, there is now a thrusting demand to focus on de-complicating the subject of project management.
 
The intention of this work is to bring forth a paradigm shift to ‘Project Management Simplified’ (PMS). This paper highlights the ability of PMS to focus on the most critical parameters thereby bringing in a simplistic, un-cluttered approach for project management. This paper also brings forth how PMS brings in a mechanism to handle some of the most prominent failure points for IT projects, in a most simple yet effective and in-fact most importantly in a proactive manner. This work finally addresses the single most important question of the IT project stakeholders, to have the capability of foreseeing project risks in the most timely and accurate manner along with the capability of gauging project health in the most quantifiable manner. This work brings forth the ability of PMS in reducing the stress levels of the project execution teams with the streamlining it brings as part of project execution. The impact of reduced stress levels gets propagated on the socio environment of these teams that includes the corporate environment and the social environment of their families.  
 
 
    
Expected Take-away:
