These methods have been widely used in large organisations effectively. However, when projects are implemented in an SME (Small and Medium-sized Enterprise) environment there is often a lack of an established method of project management or skilled project implementers who can successfully use methods used in large organisations (Ilincuta and Jergeas 2003). As project workers find themselves pressured to become more responsive, reacting ever more quickly to business demands, it is commonplace for smaller organisations to forgo formal project management practices. This is often due to the fact that small projects are viewed as simple to deploy, suffer from a lack of resources, or are given low prioritisation by the organisation (Rowe 2007). Even the PMBOK (Project Management Book of Knowledge) published by the PMI (Project Management Institute), the current de facto project management standard based on best-practice, can be perceived by SMEs as complicated and overly bureaucratic, something undesirable in regards to time-constrained or low-budget
Forecasts should be reasonable. Resource leveling, as it should relates to inventory, is the resource management technique that is aimed at keeping the stock of the resources on hand level, reducing both excess inventories and shortages. In case of project management, resource leveling means scheduling decisions, which are driven by resource management concerns, such as the limited resource availability. As opposed to leveling, resource smoothing may not delay the project completion date, only particular activities within their float. Many organizations now prefer professional services automation software tools which makes resource management tasks more efficient and effective.
For example, the marketing team is sometimes asked to deliver a quick summary or research of customers. It requires very few people to participate but needs a quick feedback. Agile method will be a good choice to guide a small project like this. Agile method can help team deliver quick and high-quality development, testing and cooperation. It requires frequent communication between developers and managers which help both sides to build up experiences and trust.
The Problem We Tackle Agile bring one side benefit and one side lot of drawbacks , especially in software testing were software need to be well tested to make error free in a short time. In agile software development and testing goes most of the time with very little planning. The continuing changing requirements are a direct effect on the software quality. The most known problem  we face in agile software testing are: • Large software development project where software deliverables are pre defied with milestones and testing process is difficult to calculate the time for the development life cycles. • Not having a sufficient test documentation lead towards the time-consuming process of further software testing.
Agile Project Managers real-time delivery metrics such as Velocity, Burndown, look at proactive, and Cumulative Flow versus frequently out-of-date Gantt Charts, spreadsheets and irrelevant or impossible project milestones. Why Agile is suitable only for small teams? A common mistake of agile project managers is that they are successful with one agile team and then add more projects and teams without preparing for the growth. Before they know it, they have a hodgepodge of teams using their own modular agile tools to manage their work. These tools do not speak the same language or roll up to a clear software portfolio vision.
Fayol argued that managers should plan, organize, control and lead which these functions are in agreement from the management models covered in class. The main task of management is to establish plans and goals which are profitable for the company. I use these basic models/ functions to my day to day activities to make sure that all management/leadership process is facilitated accordingly. I believe that a team that learns together and from each other can create a very constructive and productive atmosphere. The success of the team as a whole benefits each team member individually.
Every organization has it’s own patterns to work , it’s own way to achieve it’s goals but the organization needs to adopt some strategy (a proper system) a defined way to work in organization .

It is like a vision for organization so that we can work properly on our actions and performances.
Figure 3.2 Current Organizational Structure According to Burke (1999: Chapter 7) Pure project structure doesn’t use company resources effectively and efficiently as it result in duplication of efforts in a multiple projects organization. It has a tendency to stockpile equipment and personnel, so employees tend to have fears about job security when projects terminate. Advantages of a pure project structure only include short communications lines and customer focus. So the matrix structure gives the best of both worlds, thus the current structure at Multi Projects Inc. need not be changed, it just has to be improved. A Project Management Office (PMO) or programme manager structure can be put in place to manage these multiple projects.
