Often times packaging projects do not move along as we plan. Sometimes projects even fail completely. Many projects that fail do so because of poor project management strategy or lack of strategy altogether. The benefits of project management serve everyone involved in the packaging development process: the manager who oversees the project, the client who anxiously awaits the completed project, and the production team that get the project up and running. Project management isn’t rocket science, yet it often gets dressed up that way. In reality, project management is just a set of tools – a roadmap if you will, that enables managers to guide a project from point A to point B in a way that demonstrates efficiency, cost-savings and plain ‘ol ingenuity. We live in a world where change, and the rate of change, is constantly increasing. In order to survive and prosper, organizations need to continually modify their products and services. And packaging projects are the means by which innovations are delivered.
