Spaghetti marshmallow sky tower project was really an interesting activity and it clarifies what dose project management mean: it is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements. Since it is summer time and it is time for wedding I’m going to illustrate how to plan for a wedding as a project management, planning a wedding is really exciting but it can be stressful. it need to be organized and efficient by keeping track of the budget of the bride , meeting deadlines and making a specific detail what to do , making list will help to reduce some of the stress involved .
The wedding planners are just like all project managers; typically perform a list of activity in order to manage a project:
- Identify the requirements
- Address the various need and expectations of the stakeholders as the project is planned and carried out
- cake design
- the theme party
- guest list
- invitation design
The wedding planner must ensure that everyone involve is in agreement and all the requirements will be establish after that that the scope can be defined. A scope statement must be developed in order for the project to stay on track and so that the project objectives will be met. Each wedding differs in the degree of emphasis it places on the various constrain; some will place more emphasis on the budget, other there concern will be in different path they are just looking for a unique party that no one ever before have do it .
However to manage the project the wedding planner must define the activities and develop a schedule and control this schedule , he must be able to identify the resources and estimate the duration needed to complete individual activities with the estimated resources. A Wedding planner is under strict time constraints to organize the wedding; the schedule acts much like a day planner that is reasonable and efficient to follow. The planning will start from the bride, groom. And wedding party has with dress / tuxedo makers, florists and cake designer. Wedding planner must obtain accurate estimates form the service provider such as caterers and florists, wedding planner must be creative problem solvers and have project management skill so he or she will be able to hold the project from A TO Z.
Finally, what I really see that there is so much information out there on the internet about how you should plan something, I mean really we live in time where everything we want to know is at our fingertips. So here my question. Those who are planning to get marred do we still need to go to wedding planner or we can precede it and manage it by our self just by gathering information and resources form the internet?
