What is Project Management? Project management is the practice of applying knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to complete a project according to specific requirements. It comes down to identifying the problem, creating a plan to solve the problem, and then executing that plan until the problem has been solved.

More specifically, what is a project? A project is a temporary group activity designed to produce a unique product, service, or result. The word “temporary” means projects must have a defined beginning and end, and therefore defined timeline, scope, and resources. A project is unique in that it is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. This means the project team might include people who don’t usually work together, and require resources that are typically outside the scope of day-to-day operations. And all must be expertly managed to deliver the on-time, on-budget results, learning, and integration that organizations need.
