A sobering new statistic indicates that less than half of all projects assigned to management are completed, done correctly, finished on time, and under budget. Project management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources so that projects meet their defined scope, time, and cost constraints. As a manager or assistant manager, you will be responsible for many projects, and you will be evaluated on their planning, coordination, and control from inception to completion, including meeting their quality requirements on time and within cost.

They increase sales, improve customer satisfaction, reduce costs, improve the work environment, and result in countless other benefits.
