What is Project Management About? 

Any project is a series of tasks which is short-term and has a clear beginning and end with specific goals set out by the project manager (the one who leads other team members in the project). Everything from hiring new staff, advertising new products,  putting together events and putting up a new building are all examples of projects.

The main aim of project management is simply to get things done, a simple concept, but not easy to put into practice. As a project manager, you will be involved with the creation of the project idea, the gathering of team members, controlling, monitoring and making changes in the project where you see fit.
