In business and industry it is defined as the managing and directing of time, material, personnel, and costs to complete a project in an orderly and economical manner and meet established objectives of time, cost, and technical results. The three major phases of a project (project phases) are plan, schedule, and control (Spiner, 1989). Our definition of project management (for the purpose of this resource guide) goes beyond the industry definition. In our definition, we include planning, cost estimation, economic and financial analysis, cost engineering, scheduling, and performance measurement.

The process of directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the project life cycle using modern management techniques to achieve established objectives of scope, quality, time, cost and stakeholder satisfaction.(PMI) The Project-Change Frame® defines it as managing the progress of an individual project, from the point it is approved, through to achievement of the Project Goal. Project management involves a 'technical' side - planning, organising, directing and controlling all project-related activities and resources in order to achieve the Goal and deliver the required set of results. It also involves a 'human' side - selling the need for the project, motivating the Project team, identifying and involving the people affected by the project, and obtaining the organisation's commitment to sustain the changes once they have been implemented.
Both a process and set of tools and techniques concerned with defining the project's goal, planning all the work to reach the goal, leading the project and support teams, monitoring progress, and seeing to it that the project is completed in a satisfactory way.
Project management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources in such a way that these resources deliver all the work required to complete a project within defined scope, time, and cost constraints. A project is a temporary and one-time endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service, that brings about beneficial change or added value. This property of being a temporary and a one-time undertaking contrasts with processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent ongoing functional work to create the same product or service over and over again.
