What is Project Management?

In simple terms, Project management is a practice of leading a team and managing it in order to achieve goals and meet the end target with precision. This practice mainly focuses on achieving the goals by dealing with the given constraints such as deadlines to submit the job, etc. These days, with the advancement in technology, there are enough project management tools that help us to stay on top in each and every project. 

But as we know that no one is perfect, you may always find a lot of problems in projects, in spite of having good software.
