A great post from Tom Tsongas regarding Project Management.
Projects are a common term in day-to-day vernacular. People use them to define home improvement efforts, homework assignments that involve teams, and of course, specific initiatives in a corporate setting whereby some intrinsic deliverable or improvement is the net result.
The term ‘Project Management’ is often splashed around between individuals in both corporate and external settings. Yet in many instances, when people are pressed for a more in-depth synopsis of what project management actual is and what is involved, the answers can sometimes be wild and varied. The line between the responsibilities of the standard project manager can also be obscured and overlapped with other areas of expertise, such as product management, product marketing and business analysis, which can often complicate the true definition of what a project manager does and what project management actually is from a definition standpoint.
