The role of the Project Manager
The Association of Project Management (APM) defines project management as the application of processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the project objectives. A project is a unique, transient endeavour undertaken to achieve planned objectives that could be defined in terms of outputs, outcomes or benefits. A project is usually deemed to be a success if it achieves the objectives according to their acceptance criteria, within an agreed timescale and budget.

How is project management different from normal management?
A key factor that distinguishes project management from just management is that it has a final deliverable objective and a finite timespan, unlike management which is an on-going process. Because of this, a project professional needs a wide range of skills such as:
People management skills
Good business awareness
When to use project management?
Projects are separate from usual business activities, requiring people to come together temporarily to focus on specific project objectives. As a result, effective teamwork is central to successful projects. Project management is concerned with managing discrete packages of work to achieve specific objectives. The way the work is managed depends upon a wide variety of factors. The scale, significance and complexity of the work are obvious factors: relocating a small office and organising the Olympics shared many basic principles, but offer very different managerial challenges.
