Overview

Project managers are responsible for all aspects of a project for the life of the project—but what is a project? In business terms, a project is an undertaking with specific goals, deliverables and deadlines outside of the normal day-to-day operation of an enterprise. Project managers work with people from various functional areas and locations, coordinate special budgets and resources, and oversee project execution. People with project management expertise are in increasing demand as organizations are under pressure to meet multiple unique needs and deliver results on time and on budget.
