Fundamentals of Project Management

A project is complete when it starts working for you, rather than you working for it.

As an effective project manager, you organize resources, work under tight deadlines, control project change and generate maximum team performance. Projects are run by people and often involve different parts of an organization. Project management is a combination of techniques, procedures, people, and systems focused on the successful completion of a project. It is also a discipline that will support the planning, implementation, tracking, and control of projects.
