The following article from IIL shares the value of Project Management disciplines.  It highlights PMBOK (version 6) and other disciplines, that can effectively define tasks & resources leading to project successful completion.

What is Project Management?

Projects have been around for thousands of years. Ever see a picture of the Pyramids of Giza? That’s a project. How about the Great Wall of China? Yup, another project. What about the International Space Station? You guessed it — another project. Projects come in all shapes and sizes. Have you planned a summer vacation lately? Well, that’s a project. And, how about all those home “projects” that take up our evenings and weekends? The name says it all, doesn’t it?

And these projects were led by competent and highly trained individuals, appropriately named Project Managers, who applied knowledge, skills, techniques, and tools, to all the project activities to produce the end result that met the requirements. That’s called Project Management.  Let’s get a bit more formal. According to the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), project management is defined as “the application of knowledge skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.“
