Project Management

Project management isn't just about assigning tasks to others. Project management involves planning, organization, identifying resources, and monitoring progress and quality. Project managers also create and track Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and milestones for a project timeline, anticipate the troubleshoot issues as they come up, and are important part of every team.
