FUNDAMENTALS OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT/USE OF MS-PROJECT IN PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Project Management is fast becoming a global concept in measuring the success of a project. An understanding of Project Management techniques will help various Organisations to carry out Projects on time, on budget and within the scope of the project, with minimal (or no) disruption to the rest of the business. Furthermore the knowledge of Project Management helps in project planning, resource management, motivation of project team members, and ensures timely completion of a project.
Various forms of projects are being executed regularly across Nigeria. However the concept of project management is yet to be fully embraced by Nigerians involved in projects. Hence this has resulted, on several occasions, the failure in execution of projects. Possible barriers to successful project planning and execution in Nigeria include: social and political systems, cultural blocks, lack of technical expertise in project management and lack of financial support. Therefore it is imperative that project management be fully incorporated into the Nigeria system.
