challenge. It might involve fine-tuning work methods, clarifying
roles and simplifying project reporting, or visualizing progress
through the utilization of user-friendly project tools.
Project management of today concerns the entire organization,
whether it is a private enterprise or a public authority. Almost

developed by alternating between theoretic learning and prac-
tical application of skills and knowledge.
