    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 4 (2019), Issue 1, pg(s) 19-22

    Project management is an effective management approach that has proven to be a great value for development of the Western Balkan region. Successful project identification, preparation and implementation can help developing countries in their progress. This research focuses on Western Balkan countries and the most common project management barriers. They are analysed related to two groups of barriers, one linked to the human resource development, and other related to the government functioning. Later the barriers are connected to challenges identified by the PMBOK project management knowledge areas and how they are influencing the implementations in the analysed region.

    THE ROLE OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR SUCCESSFUL PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS GROWTH

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 6, pg(s) 290-293

    Today’s business environment is highly dynamic, unstable, and characterised by many unpredictable challenges. This paper provides a review of the role of project management for improvement of performance, as well as for establishment and implementation of strategies for sustainable growth. Project management is considered as an effective approach for efficient planning, risk management, provision of informed decision-making about the company resources, monitoring, and measurement of performance results. On the basis of these advantages, the paper will also present practical recommendations for integration of project management at the levels of business strategy, structure, and processes.

    THE EDUCATION IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION-A BASIS FOR SUCCESSFUL REALIZATION OF THE STUDENTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MINING AND GEOLOGY "ST. IVAN RILSKI"

    Science. Business. Society., Vol. 1 (2016), Issue 3, pg(s) 36-38

    Introduction of training in entrepreneurship, innovation and project management is one of the most discussed topics in the field of education as a whole. Particular attention is paid to this education in the field of higher education and is one of the priority objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy.

    According to the European Commission study, carried out in the Member States of the EU and 15 other countries in the period 2015-2015 students received training in entrepreneurship and innovation be implemented most successfully. They are the best paid in the labor market, employment is almost maximum, the more likely they are to start their own business and their companies are the most innovative and creative.

    This article presents the experience in entrepreneurship education, innovation and project management of the students from the UMG "St. Ivan Rilski”, Sofia.

    An essential point in this education is the acquisition of knowledge and skills that link higher education with the requirements of the business and the labor market.

  • SOME PROJECT MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 10 (2016), Issue 2, pg(s) 55-58

    There are many specific techniques involved in each of the four major sets of activities called POMA (Planning, Organizing, Monitoring, and Adjusting) phases. Some require extremely deep technical knowledge and others demand great social skills, in this section, we will focus on four commonly needed project management skills: project effort estimation, work breakdown structure, project status tracking with earned value and development measuring & metrics The first two of them are techniques needed in the planning and organizing phases, and the third is needed in the monitoring phase. The fourth is needed for part of planning and for monitoring.

    In the report they have explained some techniques for estimating software project management

  • METAMODELS BASED ONTOLOGY DEVELOPMENT TO ACHIEVE STANDARD-COMPLIANT PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 10 (2016), Issue 2, pg(s) 39-42

    The present paper illustrates the current state of affairs for most organizations involved in the sphere of Information technologies that run or strive to run projects in accordance with applicable ISO standards and CMMI. This paper presents the target state of affairs and its design with used technologies. Reaching the goal state is summarized by serialization of metamodels in XML, mapping/parsing of metamodels (in XML) to OWL2 DL (RL profile) ontologies (written/exchangeable in RDF/XML), storages of these semantic metamodels and models (ontologies/semantic data) in advanced RDBMSs with support of ontologies, R2RML mapping of existing project-related relational data to semantic data and storage of semantic data in semantic stores hosted in existing RDBMSs or migration to such ones, extraction of non-relational project-related data and mapping of these logical models to a physical (relational) model and integration in RDBMSs to centralize all project-related data all governed by the defined vocabularies (ontologies of CMMI for Development and ISO 15504/ 12207). Achieving the goal state enables stakeholders to query and infer from project-related semantic data to manage, analyze and assess projects against underlaying standards. Through commonly-accepted adapters, semantic data, metamodels and models are exposed to external applications.

  • COMPARISON BETWEEN PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND SOFTWARE PROJECT MANAGEMENT

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 8 (2014), Issue 12, pg(s) 16-19

    Software project management encompasses the knowledge, techniques and tools necessary to manage the development of software products. Software project management remains different from project management in other more established fields for a number of reasons. Software is “brain product” only, unconstrained by the laws of physics or by the limits of manufacturing processes. In the report discusses topics that managers need to create a plan for software development using effective estimation of size and to execute the plan with attention to productivity and quality.
    In the report they have understand the concept of project management, software project management
