WHAT IS PROJECT MANAGEMENT?

Project management is the application of processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the project objectives. Projects are the vehicles of change in an organisation. They are not the repetitive business-as-usual type of activity. Project management is essentially aimed at producing an end product or deliverable that will effect some change for the benefit of the organisation that instigated the project.
