About Project Management

According to the Project Management Institute's A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge - Third Edition, a project is defined as a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result. Project Management is defined as the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

Project management knowledge and practices are best described in terms of their component processes. These processes can be placed into five Process Groups - Initiating, Planning, Executing, Controlling, and Closing - and nine Knowledge Areas - Project Integration Management, Project Scope Management, Project Time Management, Project Cost Management, Project Quality Management, Project Human Resource Management, Project Communications Management, Project Risk Management, and Project Procurement Management.
