Project Management is the business process of creating a unique product, service or result. A project is a finite endeavor having specific start and completion dates undertaken to create a quantifiable deliverable. Projects under go progressive elaboration by developing in steps and predictable increments that are tied to benchmarks, milestones and completion dates. This finite characteristic of projects stands in sharp contrast to processes, or operations, which are permanent or semi-permanent functional work to repetitively produce the same product or service. In practice, the management of these two systems is often found to be quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and the adoption of separate management philosophy.

The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the goals of the project charter while adhering to three out of the four classic project constraints some time referred to as the "triple constraints" The four constraints are defined as scope, time, cost and quality.

The more ambitious goal of project management is to carry the project through the entire project management life cycle. The project management life cycle consists of five phases called Project Management Knowledge Areas: Project Initiation,Project Planning, Project Executing, Project monitoring and controlling and project closing.

Each Project Management Knowledge Areas utilize the nine process groups of the project management life cycle which are integration management, scope management, time management, cost management, quality management, human resource management, communications management,risk management and procurement management. According to PMBOK® the nine process groups are used to carefully monitor and control the project so that it is completed within the classic triple constraints of project management.
