Project management is concerned with the effective management of projects to ensure the successful delivery of a high-quality product, on time and on budget, to the customer. A project is a temporary group activity designed to accomplish a specific goal such as the delivery of a product to a customer. It has a clearly defined beginning and end in time.
Project management involves good project planning and estimation; the management of resources; the management of issues and change requests that arise during the project; managing quality; managing risks; managing the budget; monitoring progress; taking appropriate action when progress deviates from expectations; communicating progress to the various stakeholders; and delivering a high-quality product to the customer.
