Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to achieve the goals of a defined project within established constraints including resources, time, and budget. A project is distinguished from ongoing operations of a business in having defined start and end times, and typically accomplish a single unique goal or limited set of goals. The lifecycle of a project consists of initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, and conclusion phases, and each phase will be carefully managed in a successful project.
Important roles of a project manager include understanding project objectives, dependencies, and constraints and communicating them to team members and stakeholders; organizing work activities; overcoming obstacles; motivating team members; resolving conflicts; and keeping project backers and beneficiaries informed of project status, concerns, and progress toward completion.
Different project methodologies have been developed and the nature of the project and needs of the organization influence which methodology is most applicable. Examples include the Waterfall method for projects with sequential sub-components and the Agile method for projects requiring speed and flexibility and that preferably are assigned teams with good internal communication.
