All Organisations across industries such as education, construction, healthcare and even manufacturing have project management departments that manage and execute both small and large scale projects. A project manager is required to understand the aims of the project, the resources required to execute the project and find the right manpower to carry out the necessary activities for timely delivery of a project. With advancements in technology and increasing competition amongst various industries, project management has grown into a more complex function, with most organisations now requiring individuals with a specific background in project management to fulfil the necessities of the projects being launched.
