Projects fail for many reasons – not delivering to cost or quality, missing deadline or simply not meeting project scope. In fact some organizations have a history of overwhelming project failure that threatens their existence simply because project teams are not well equipped with required skills and techniques to be able to deliver project goals and objectives. Research has shown that project management improvement initiatives improve project performance by up to a fifty percent for the first project and can continue for each new project done if the enterprise or company uses effective project management tools and techniques.
Project Management is the application of skills, techniques and knowledge and processes to manage projects, so as to deliver project goals and objectives on time, within budget and according to requirement (within the scope).
