INTRODUCTION

In today�s business environment, much of what we do is in the nature of projects, both small and large. Whatever our role, it is likely that at some stage we will called upon to manage a project or to join a project team either as a team member or support officer. At the very least, we may be asked to complete assignments where complexity or size is such that something more that good organisational skills is required.

Whatever the task, project management is a brilliant process we all can use to get things done on time and within budget. Knowledge of the discipline of project management also enables us to contribute more effectively as a member of a project team.
