What are projects, and why are so many businesses reorganizing
to include them? Why has project management
become such a popular career track? In Part 1 of this book,
you will find answers to these questions and more.
Because projects differ from the ongoing operations of a
firm, managing them presents a new set of challenges. Over
the past 50 years, a number of tools and techniques have
evolved to deal with these challenges. Chapters 1 and 2
include an overview of these techniques, along with the five

We live in a world where change—and the rate of

prosper, organizations need to continually modify their
products and services. Projects are the means by which
these innovations are effected. Greater change = more
innovations = more projects.
