Managing a project is different from managing a production facility, or other established on-going organization. Differences are found in the project life cycle, substantial changes in the level-of-effort required at different periods in the project life cycle and the consequent difficulties of exercising control. Project management is not difficult to understand but depending on the nature and circumstances of the project, success may be difficult to achieve. The key is thorough and early planning to provide the basis for sound execution.
