Overview of Project Management


Project Management Overview

Project management plays a key role at the heart of every business of every size. Every effort to improve, enhance or simply change the way a business runs can be considered a project. New products, new services, expansion, new customer care strategies – all the kinds of things that can work in favour of a business. That is, just as long as the project’s result is as intended. Project management is connected with the final result just as strongly as the viability of the project idea itself. In the wrong hands, even the simplest of projects can produce disastrous results. At the other end of the scale, superior project management can take what appears to be an impossible goal and turn it into a reality.

This exclusive ‘project management overview’ tutorial has been designed for anyone looking to explore the core basics of project management. Study the definitions and origins of project management, along with the important roles projects play at the heart of the modern business.
