Project management is a critical practice that applies knowledge of process, skills, tools, deliverables, and techniques to project activities to ensure a solid path to project success by meeting goals and requirements.
In business, a project is typically a defined piece of work that is conducted to meet specific goals. Examples of projects include the development of software to increase employee productivity, the design of a website to decrease call volume to a business, the migration of a platform to a new technology. These projects require a team of people who are responsible for different aspects of the delivery. For instance, you’d likely see a designer, developer, and copywriter working on website design projects. This team would sit under a project manager whose role is to ensure that the team delivers the project on time, under budget, and meeting its stated goals.
