Certified Project Management Practitioner

Certified Project Management Practitioner

A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. A typical project starts with someone having an idea, or by an idea emerging through discussion. The idea then gains acceptance from a wider group: probably informally through discussion with colleagues and then through a more formal process involving senior management, the management committee or Board. This leads to a fund-raising process, which usually causes significant delay, and then, if the funding bid is successful the project can start, staff can be appointed and work can begin. This work has to be planned and managed, problems dealt with, until the project concludes, hopefully successfully, and is wound up. Here comes the role of project manager in project management.
