The Project Management Manual contains the basic knowledge in project management divided into 5 specific chapters designed to train current and future project managers:

Chapter 1 - Introduction to Concepts, where we provide an overview and define the concept of project management (project management), what is meant by it and what is needed to successfully manage a project.

Chapter 2 - Project Leader and Organization, where we describe the responsibilities and desired characteristics of a successful project leader. A successful project leader gains respect from the team and members of the organization through leadership skills and application of superior organizational skills.

Chapter 3 - Project Planning, where we argue why planning is a critical component of any project. Project methodologies provide a systematic approach to project planning and implementation, including those with time and resource constraints. Goals must be clearly defined with a clear contribution to the long-term plan and mission of the company they support.

Chapter 4 - Development of the project plan, where we describe the project schedule and its creation. It covers good definition of tasks needed to complete the project, along with identification of tools needed to monitor and manage project implementation.

Chapter 5 - Project Control Mechanisms, where we explain why changes occur in a project and indicate that not all changes are bad. However, changes within a project should not be implemented just because they are desired, but because they are needed. The most common problems in project management are insufficient resources and their redistribution during project implementation.
