The Goals of Projects and Project Management
By: Michael B. Bender

Publisher: FT Press

This Element is an excerpt from A Manager’s Guide to Project Management: Learn How to Apply Best Practices (ISBN: 9780137136902) by Michael B. Bender.

“Project management is an evolving discipline. Historically, the discipline concentrated on itself—focusing on the tools, processes, and techniques for successfully executing projects. Now that these are well developed, the discipline must look outward, focusing on its environment. Executive management shoulders the responsibility to conceive, design, implement, and manage the organization’s overall objectives, culture, environment, and processes for all disciplines, including project management.  Focusing on these key areas will help you drive your organization’s success in projects and programs.”
