PMI (Project Management Institute) has rightly defined, “Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.” But beyond that, one also needs to learn how project management is beneficial for everyone involved in the project management process; right from the manager who executes, monitors and controls the project, the client who eagerly awaits the completed project and ultimately the team that gets the project up and running.
At the crux of project management lies basic organizational skills, which decides the success of a project. Today, many managers overlook the importance of effective organizational skills and resist investing in project management courses that can help them enhance their management skills.

Enhances Customer Satisfaction: It is indeed a known fact that customer is the king who decides the future of your business. When you are able to deliver a project on time and within the specified budget, the customer walks out happy.
