Topic 1 Project Management Introduction

Definition

Project management refers to the tasks that go into organizing a team to accomplish a specific objective or series of objectives by a specified deadline.

Project management helps a manager navigate numerous obstacles in putting together a plan, such as identifying available resources, what milestones and deliverables must be achieved, who is responsible for what, and many other aspects of a project.

In small businesses, a project manager may deal with less complexity but faces the additional challenge of fewer available resources.
