If you have to complete work that involves priorities, complex and numerous tasks, deadlines, constant communication across organizational boundaries, limited resources and do all of this with little if any precedents or guidelines, then you could benefit from using Project Management techniques.

Everyone is a Project Manager, but not everyone knows how to manage a project. Projects can vary in size and scope from a large petrochemical refinery to building a boat, upgrading the company's IT system, or developing a new product. People who have to carry out projects without training usually lack a practical method and a technique for getting the work done effectively and efficiently.
