Projects and project management are key elements in many managers? lives. Some organizations, particularly in the areas of consultancy and information technology, use projects as a normal mode of operations and virtually all organizations rely on projects to introduce new initiatives or one-off developments. Even as a student, you are likely to find these techniques useful in managing your own efforts on projects such as assignments and your dissertation. The specialized management techniques developed for managing projects are useful across disciplines and in both public sector and industrial or commercial organizations. A study of project management may provide key management skills that can be very usefully applied early in your professional career.
