Why do we need project management?

According to PMI, a project is a unique and temporary endeavour undertaken to create a product, service or result. Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques in order to initiate, plan, execute and deliver a project according to the requirement of project’s stakeholders. A project manager is required to use a broad set of skills and expertise to resolve complex and interdependent problems, develop efficiency and effectiveness in the project organization, inspire the project team and develop a shared purpose.
