What is project management?

In our definition, project management is - "A holistic management approach to implement change and create a new product/service/result within a specific time frame."

Project management can be applied to any projects regardless of size, budget or timeline. Some examples are:

  • Developing a new product or service

  • Running a political campaign

  • Building a highway or bridge

  • Implementing a new information system or an ecommerce website

  • Sending a probe to Mars etc.

  • Without the advanced tools, techniques and methodologies we have today, people created project timelines, located materials and resources, and weighed the risks involved. These early ideas were the precursors to a set of management techniques we now know as "modern project management."

    The discipline of project management plays a key role in the competitive, global business arena. Savvy customers demand more and better products and faster services. Time-to-market pressures force greater efficiency. Organizations need individuals and teams with solid project management knowledge and skills. Modern organizations are finding that project management provides many advantages - not the least of which is a more attractive bottom line!

    More than ever, professional project management has found its place in today's competitive global business arena.
