Doing successful business in an ever-changing environment is the key challenge for any company. Project management aims to drive business change. It acts as is an integral component of business work management. Projects help take various initiatives ranging from ad campaigns and market research to HR training and budgeting. If you want your company to pursue their plans for stability and growth, you need to place project management at the core of your business change. Here are several ways that project management can help your organization.
Handling Uncertainties before They Become a Problem
Unexpected issues and delays along with their consequences can have a serious impact on your business. Even a short unforeseen delay in product delivery due to inadequate planning or neglecting to constraints and assumptions can ruin your reputation, damage customer relationships and create extra costs.

Ensuring Consistent and Dependent Delivery
Delivering change in a consistent and dependent manner ensures success. Consistency and dependency are two factors that make a project. When all project tasks and activities are done consistently and without interruptions and when the team knows how their interdependent assignments are linked to each other, you truly drive change by your project.

Time Logs to Account for Billable and Non-Billable Time
The key to determining an adequate business management structure is that you understand the difference between revenue-generating (or billable) hours and time spent on maintaining and developing your business (non-billable). Billable hours are the actual time you spent directly with the client or working on client orders. By accounting for billable time you calculate the amount of money to be paid by the customer. Non-billable time are those hours, days and weeks you dedicate to growing your business and keeping it running smoothly. It does not bring you direct immediate revenue but increases business performance and improves your company's financial state in the long run.
Tracking Tasks and Logging Working Time
CentriQS lets track tasks and log working hours and provides powerful analytics tools to help account for billable and non-billable time. First, in the Task analytics view you can see created, in-progress and closed tasks, analyze the performance of your personnel, compare initial estimates against actual achievements, visualize pivot tables, create extended reports on non-billable hours, and more. You can see what targets each worker is assigned to and how this individual handles the job.
Secondly, the business work software application has 1) the Timer to log working time and 2) the Time Logs view to report on time performance. You can create a spreadsheet-like report that tells how many billable hours are spent by each employee and what amounts need to be reimbursed by the client.
