What is project management?

Project managers, typically do the following:
  • Prepare and negotiate cost estimates, budgets, and work timetables.
  • Report on work progress and budget matters to clients.
  • Collaborate with architects, engineers, and other construction and building specialists.
Effective project management is fundamental to the success of any project. Without it, projects run the risk of failing or not meeting client aspirations. As projects become more complex, so do the associated risks. Effective management can not only mitigate these, but also realise new opportunities. The right people are key to successful project delivery. Successful project management requires a combination of leadership, motivation and rigorous administration to ensure that the planned project outcome is achieved.
