Management – is a special kind of activity that transforms a disorganized crowd into an efficient and focused productive group. Management as such is a driving force for social change and an example of significant social change.
In general form, a project (eng. project) is “something that is conceived or planned” (Webster’s explanatory dictionary), (from Latin projectus – thrown forward, protruding, protruding forward) – a plan, idea, image, embodied in the form of a description, justification of calculations, drawings, revealing the essence of the concept and the possibility of its practical implementation.
A project – is a temporary venture designed to create unique products, services, or outcomes.
Project management – is both an art and a science. Art, because it requires skill, tact and intuition in managing people.
