Introduction To Project Management: The Basics for Success

70% of all projects fail to meet their stated objectives.

This is a startling statistic when you consider people have been managing project for millennia. Ancient records from building the great wall and the pyramids show humans have known the fundamentals for a long time. Once companies started downsizing in the 1980s project management became more and more important. Many experts disappeared so when work needed to be done, the company created a project and assigned a project manager. Today much of the work of all companies is accomplished through projects and managing projects has become a recognized profession. Projects still fail more often than not. Why? People ignore the fundamentals, try to rush through the work, fail to manage risks, and end up taking more time to clean up the mess. Luckily you can avoid the pitfalls if you apply the proven, time-tested principles the ancients knew.
