Project Management

Project management is the process of planning, organizing, and managing tasks to achieve a specific goal. This could involve anything from developing new software to relocating a department's offices. By breaking down complex tasks into smaller, more manageable parts, project management allows you to keep track of progress and report on it effectively.

While there are many different approaches to project management, having a basic set of templates and foundational knowledge can be incredibly valuable. If you're planning a project at the university, the following resources from OTDI could be very helpful.
