Frequently asked questions

Project management is the process of leading a team that delivers that project and the best possible outcomes. Projects are normally temporary, rather than recurring. They should have a fixed timeline, allocated resources and a defined beginning and end. Projects may be large or small, complex or simple, and may take years to complete, or could be completed within a few days.

In a digital setting, projects come in all shapes and sizes, from developing large-scale web apps to orchestrating marketing campaigns. Digital Project Management is all about using cutting-edge tech to get the job done more efficiently and guiding a digital project from conception to completion.

In the broadest sense, Digital Project Managers are responsible for planning, organising, and directing the completion of digital projects for an organisation, while ensuring these projects are delivered on time, on budget, and within scope.

Although no two roles will ever be the same, some of the day-to-day tasks that go into being a Digital Project Manager include:

  • Planning projects (often using the waterfall approach)
  • Motivating, managing and getting the best out of your team
  • Running Agile Scrum sprints
  • Troubleshooting and getting failing projects back on track
  • Managing scope, time, budget, resources, risk and quality
  • Dealing with internal and external stakeholders

In the digital age, project managers use collaborative tools and software to synchronise teams and successfully deliver projects with greater efficiency than ever before. Here’s a shortlist of some of the software options that are powering-up today’s industry.

  • TeamGantt
    TeamGantt is project planning software that brings Gantt charts online. It offers free tools for creating gantt charts and allows you to share them with teams, stakeholders and clients, enabling project plans to take shape collaboratively.
  • Jira
    Jira is part of a family of products designed to make managing team projects easier. Digital Project Managers use Jira to create roadmaps, product backlogs and sprint boards, which can be accessed and worked on by an entire team.
  • monday.com
    monday.com is an online work management platform that helps teams of all sizes plan, track and schedule their daily tasks. From large-scale product roadmaps to daily iterations, monday.com enables teams to define clear ownership of tasks, track productivity, manage sprints and collaborate effectively.
