A project is a short term effort we do to meet the organizations strategic objectives. It is how organizations implement changes. Besides, project management is the discipline of planning, organizing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. It is thus a carefully defined set of activities that use resources (money, people, materials, energy, space, provisions, communication, motivation, etc) to achieve the project goals and objectives. Therefore, book addresses project management from a management perspective. It is arranged using the project life cycle as the primary organizational guideline. The life cycle approach is found to be a comfortable framework for the reader. It introduces you to project management concepts and techniques which will be of use to you in many management roles as organizations increasingly need to manage complex and novel changes. This may be as a project manager; managing in-house projects as part of a management role; as a consultant to project teams; as a client to a project; or as a student or an instructor who want to know and understand the theory and practices of project management.
