Project Management is an ancient practice since 2570 B.C. when the pyramids were built.
It has been a crucial part of ancient knowledge. But it has undergone evolution through the ages. Since the evolution process is continuous, keeping oneself updated with the latest developments in this field is crucial.
A project can even be our daily activities. Anything can be constructed as a project. Buying groceries to constructing dams. It is an art and science.
It requires careful planning, strong execution skills, number crunching, budget planning, people management, and a risk-taking attitude
