Project Management is more than managing budgets and delivering quality products, those two things are an end goal. A well-managed budget and a quality product make the project a success, but a lot of hard work goes on behind that in the “managing” aspect.
Imagine a superstar footballer: you see them playing well on the pitch, scoring all the goals, reaping the rewards both individually and as part of a team and getting the money that the work they put in deserves. But you don’t see the hours in the gym or on the training pitch that makes the success achievable. The management aspect of a project is essentially the same thing – anyone on the outside looking in will not see the hard-work that goes in until it comes to fruition.
