Project Management

Overview

Although the term is commonly used, no specific definition exists. If you ask two different people what project management means to them then you will often have two different answers.

Often though, when one talks of project management one is referring to a process of managing a project. However, this process is by no means simple. Project management involves a number of interrelated activities which are needed to achieve a specific goal or set of objectives.
