What is Project Management?

Project management [ˈpräˌjekt manijmənt], noun:

“The practice of applying knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to complete a project according to specific requirements. It comes down to identifying the problem, creating a plan to solve the problem, and then executing on that plan until the problem has been solved.”

According to this definition by Wrike, project management is most likely a part of your job and a big part of your day to day work. Sadly, to a lot of people, project management can seem pretty daunting, especially if your tackling it on your own. You might hear project management terms like “agile” or “scrum” or “waterfall” or “kanban” and stress that you don’t have it down yet. Fortunately, we have put together a comprehensive list of resources to help you understand and improve your efforts to become a project management professional.
