What is Project Management?

Project Management is a systems approach to planning, scheduling, and controlling time, resources, and people. It’s basically either a manual or computerized process that a company or individual uses to deliver a product or service on time. This could be completing a task at work, building a house, or developing a large database.

Project management is ideal and extremely useful for projects that take two months to several years to complete. Its primary goal is to better track and save on scarce resources such as time and money.

This is an area that has a lot of potential for us. Especially in the IT sector given that roughly 95% of IT projects are overdue and over budget.
