Professional Services Guide


Welcome to the Professional Services Guide by Wrike

Everyone manages projects — even if “project manager” isn’t your official title. Whether you’re a marketer or a creative director or an IT professional, project management is essential to achieving business objectives.

Project management can be defined as the actual process of creating, organizing, and executing a plan in order to meet specific goals. However, project management is much greater than its definition. It’s actually a vast subject covering a wide variety of topics.

Here at Wrike, we’re passionate about project management because it can increase organizational efficiencies, boost team performance, and impact the bottom line. However, we realize not everyone is a project manager by trade. Although project management is common in all aspects of business, there are many complex concepts and terminologies that may help you take your project managing career to the next level.

We’ve put together our own project management guide to introduce you to some of these concepts and terms, and even provide you with strategies and best practices for you to use. We’ve also linked to the abundance of articles on the Wrike blog to provide you with further reading, as well as other Wrike ebooks, videos, and infographics.

We hope you enjoy it!
