Multitasking can be difficult, especially if you’re completing tasks in random or haphazard ways. To effectively and efficiently complete several jobs at once, it’s much easier to plan what you need to do, and when you need to do it. Project management is essentially this, just on a larger scale, and is a key part of business.
Project management organizes work around the project in order to communicate and coordinate tasks throughout departments more effectively. It splits projects into five phases – once they’re all complete, the project life cycle is complete. This course will look at how to get started – the initiation phase.
