Project Planning vs. Project Management

In this video, Jennifer Bridges discusses why project planning is not the same as project management—and why you need to know the difference.

Jennifer discussed the definitions of project planning as compared to project management. The PMBOK® Guide, produced by the Project Management Institute (PMI) defines five processes that comprise the lifecycle of a project: initiation, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling and closing.

Planning is just one of those phases in project management. The planning phase is made up of a whole host of other activities, such as:

  • Developing the project plan
  • Resource planning
  • Scope Definition
  • Scheduling
  • Cost Estimation

And that’s just to name a few! Each of those activities are practically fields of study in and of themselves and discreet skills that the project manager uses when managing a project.

Hopefully that clarifies. To learn more about the roles of a project manager, check out Jennifer’s video The Project Manager & Team Roles.

Thanks for watching!
