But first, let’s establish exactly what project management services are.
What are Project Management Services?
Project management services specialize in planning, coordinating, and executing projects according to specific requirements and constraints. It is the process of leading the work of a team to achieve all project goals within the given constraints.
These requirements and specifications are suggested by the customer. Project managers perform some or all of the activities related to project work, from the start to the end.
Emphasis is placed on creating and maintaining project milestones and the project schedule. The end goal is to complete the project on time and within budget.
To put it more plainly, project management services are the actual personnel on the ground running the project.

What are the 5 stages of project management?
Project management involves the following stages.
Conception and initiation
This is to gain an understanding of the scope, term of reference, specifications and parameters of the project. Here we are identifying stakeholders, and we develop objectives.
In the planning stage we need to set out S.M.A.R.T goals.
S – SPECIFIC – set of specific goals (answer the what, when, where, why, which, and who)
M – MEASURABLE – create measures for success
A – ATTAINABLE – which goals are important and what will it take to achieve them
R – REALISTIC – are we willing and able to work towards the goal?
T – TIMELY – create a time frame to achieve the goal
Here, we also break down the work into manageable tasks. Every step of the project has to be laid out here.
After the entire project plan has been laid out and approved, we then execute and start project development.
Performance, Evaluation and Monitoring
This takes place throughout the course of the project development. It is an assessment of the state of the project and taking corrective measures if necessary. Milestones are recorded and reported to the stakeholders.
Every project has a completion date. At this stage project evaluation is done, a final report with lessons learnt & recommendations submitted, handover to the customer, and permanent support group.
