The use of projects and project management continues to grow in our society and its organizations.
We are able to achieve goals through project organization that could be achieved
only with the greatest of difficulty if organized in traditional ways. Though project management
has existed since before the days of the great pyramids, it has enjoyed a surge of popularity
beginning in the 1960s. A project put U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong on the moon. A
project named “Desert Storm” freed the nation of Kuwait. An annual project brings us Girl
Scout cookies as a sign that winter is just about finished. (They were a bit optimistic this
year.) The use of project management to accomplish the many and diverse aims of society’s
varied organizations continues to grow.
Businesses regularly use project management to accomplish unique outcomes with limited
resources under critical time constraints. In the service sector of the economy, the use of project
management to achieve an organization’s goals is even more common. Advertising campaigns,
voter registration drives, political campaigns, a family’s annual summer vacation, and even management.
