Project management

Introduction

Project management is a way of organising and managing resources in order to successfully complete a project, in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

Projects are separate, unique and temporary pieces of work undertaken to achieve specific objectives in business. The management of such work often requires the application of special types of skills, tools and techniques. However, certain basic principles of project management apply universally.

This guide outlines the essential best practices that are specific to each of the five stages of project management. These phases include initiation, definition and planning, implementation, monitoring and project closure.

This guide also focuses on the possible advantages of project management, and includes several project management templates and tools you can use to make your project a success.
