Project management is the concept of understanding and bringing the changes required in a project. Understanding the correct change management tools is essential, if you have to handle different types of stakeholders. You may have members in your team who are not ready to sync in to the changes you want to introduce. Having a perception about a project’s framework helps you manage the risks and uncertainties involved.
You should plan and delegate work to each team member in such a way that he or she can complete the work in time. In the middle of the project, you may run out of resources. To handle such situations and to reach the organization’s objectives, it is important that you control the project’s scope.
