Project Management


Project management is the discipline of carefully projecting or planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the project’s scope, time, quality and budget.

Black Box provides the Project Management service to businesses and organizations in need of programming and application development to create, improve, or extend project management software, project management information systems, and other systems that are used to help plan, organize, and manage resource pools, develop resource estimates, and implement project plans.

A well designed and professionally developed project management platform increases the effectiveness and efficiency of estimation and planning, scheduling, cost control and budget management, resource allocation, collaboration and communication, decision-making, workflow management, quality management, documentation management, and even basic administrative tasks.
